A bunny wabbit...

It's a big day for me tomorrow, I start a child behaviour course (related to my job). It carries on until October. I am looking forward to it but pretty apprehensive, I haven't studied for soooooo many years, maybe I've forgotten how...?

Anyway, onto my card... I absolutely loved making this card. The image reminds me of the bunny in the old (1970s-80s) Cadbury's Caramel adverts, do you remember her? The brown flowers on my card have been made using a Shape EZ template, I simply printed the template directly on the back of my paper and cut the flowers out. I then inked round the edges for some dimension and rolled the flowers up. I've popped a brad in the centres. Very easy and the result it fab. You can make smaller or larger flowers depending on how tightly you secure your rolled flower.

I am so pleased with my flowers I thought I'd show them off so here are some closeups...
