Pink Sleepy Bunny Elf and first use of Crafter's Companion Create a Card Dies.

Hello to everyone.  Another quick card share from me today.  
I was so excited to receive my new Crafter's Companion Create a Card Dies and couldn't wait to have a play.

I have previously coloured a blue version of this so cute image Sleepy Bunny Elf from Aurora Wings and wanted to colour it in pink.  
I thought that embossing the new Romance Create a Card die, would make a fabulous fantasy style background, for this so sweet character.


I am quite in love with this image and it reminds me of books which I have read, when a very small girl.  These were enchanting then and this style of image still enchants me today.

List of materials used to make this card:

Wonderful so sweet image as linked above.  
Spectrum Noir Markers used:
FS2, FS4, TN2, PPI-3, IG23
Spectrum Noir Pencils used:
01, 05, 08, 09, 36, 37, 62, 86, 113, 115, 120
Die'sire Create a Card Die - Romance 
Neenah Desert Storm Kraft Card
Core'dinations  and Centura Pearl Card
Free stamp from Creative Stamping Magazine.
Lots and lots of lovely Frantage - Shabby Blue
Roses Spellbinder die and DP from my stash
Marianne heart die cut and Label die cut
Ribbon and glitter butterflies from my stash



Above is a picture of the Romance Die cut using Neenah Desert Storm Kraft Card. 
 I cut and embossed my card using my ebosser.  Inking the card gently while still in the cutting die, removed from the die and sprinkled with Frantage. 
 After heating with my heat tool, it looked like this.  
It is very sparkly and the picture doesn't pick it up.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:



Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card and read this post.  

Enjoy your week-end.
