Playful Bunnies

Welcome to my new follower, Rita MacGranthin of RMG Creations.  Thank you for following me, I hope you can pop back now and then.  

A slider birthday card today for my great niece.  She has a pet rabbit, so I thought a card with rabbits would be perfect.

The background is made with Lawn Fawn 'Hillside Borders' and 'Forest Border' dies.  I used the one of MFT 'Surf & Turf' dies for the slider part, with a 'Spin and Slide' disc, which I was lucky enough to win over in The Playground a few months ago.  The small punched flowers have Nuvo Crystal drops for the centres.  The rabbits are cut from brown card and I used a white Sharpie pen to add the detail. Two of the rabbits are from the Joanna Sheen 'Rabbit family' set of dies.  I had intended to use all three rabbits from the set, but after sticking on the largest and the smallest rabbit, I realised the rabbit I was going to use for the slide part was going to be facing the wrong way!  Grrr!  Although the rabbit tumbles as it slides down the hill, it didn't look right going backward.  Turning the die cut over didn't look right either as it was obvious that it was the back of the die cut.  I suddenly remembered that the after school craft club I run with a friend has a Memory Box set of rabbit dies about the same size.  One of them faced the right way! Result!  I was thinking that my card would land up in Darnell's 2nd Annual April Fool's Boo-Boo Hop and NBUS Challenge #11 with a backward facing bunny, but a borrowed die saved the day!
