2 Birthday Cards for 2 Bo Bunny card sketch challenges

I’m still trying to learn how to make cards. There. I said it. lol So the way I see it, the only way for me to learn is by making more cards, right? From now on, you’ll be seeing a lot more cards from me. Some will be decent. Others will be…eh…and others, will be down right embarassing, but I have to at least try. LOL Lucky for me, Bo Bunny has Tuesday card challenges on their blog. The posts are filled with gorgeous inspiration that is totally lost on me still…but I’m trying! This post has my entry for both the January sketch which is due Feb 13 and also the Feb sketch which is due Feb 20th.

Card for the Bo Bunny Sketch Challenge

This is my take on the current Bo Bunny Card Sketch (they have one each month). I used last year’s Gabrielle collection pp, diecut stickers and layered stickers. I added color to a standard white doily with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and here’s what I came up with:

I mainly used Helmar Premium Craft Glue, but the sentiment piece is popped up with Zap Dots (foam squares) and the seam binding bow was adhered using 450 Quick Dry.

Here’s the fab Bo Bunny Sketch I was inspired by:
