Becoming real and a little bunny love {Avery Elle}

Hello friends and Happy Friday!

It's been a busy week around here, so I am especially happy to see Friday roll around at long last.  I have a card today up on the Avery Elle blog using the darling More Stories stamp set designed by the amazing Heather Campbell.  For my card, I decided to use the rabbit image and I created a card reminiscent of one of my very favorite childhood books- the Velveteen Rabbit.  Here's my take:

I started with a tan card base, rounded the bottom corners and then I used the curve from the Custom Panels Elle-ments die to lightly trace a mound.  Next I stamped the mound with the grass (and mushroom) images with brown ink.  I erased the pencil line and stamped and die cut the bunny and banner on a scrap of rustic cream card stock. 

I colored the bunny with markers and adhered him and the banner to the card base.  Finally, I stamped the dragonfly and trail.  I suppose you could say that the dragonfly is sort of like the nursery magic fairy who turns well loved toys into "real."

Here's the book and cover that inspired my card: 

Seriously, so much love for this story.  May we all have the privilege of becoming real. 

That's all for me today.  Thanks for stopping by!
