Paper Sundaes Challenge - Written Inspiration

Happy Sundae! So glad you stopped by to visit! Sure hope you are all enjoying your weekend! This week, the challenge at Paper Sundaes is to take your inspiration from a book or poem....this was difficult for me as I have so many favorites!

However, one of my favorite childhood stories was "The Veleveteen Rabbit" and adorable Bonnie from Spesch Designer Stamps (this week's sponsor) was just perfect for this! Isn't she just the cutest?

I pulled out my Basic Grey Lemonade Paper pack and matched up some copics to color this lil' darlin. I also had some fun with my spritzer tool from SU!
I used this week's fantastic sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesdays it worked perfectly for my card! It was just what I need as my Mojo has been hiding of late!

I wasn't sure about the ribbon - solid ribbon wasn't working as it covered up up too much of the fun pattern on the paper strip, but I always have a hard time using organdy. It seemed to work in this case as it let the pattern show through. I may have gotten a little carried away with the bling, but my card just needed something at the top and that seemed like the solution.

I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! I'll be slogging in the some point I will show before and after photos of the landscaping that began last June and continues......
