Another Two Challenge Card

Another card for two challenges today! This time I needed a birthday card - funny, I know, considering I'm on a birthday card design team - but sometimes it's fun to make a card with the recipient in mind. I turned to the current CAS(E) This Sketch challenge for my layout inspiration, and Just Us Girls with their Stripes theme to help put the sketch together. I mixed them in a blender, added my own seasoning, and came up with this: 

I rotated and manipulated the size of the sketch panels a little bit, but I think the original is still clear in my adaptation. To keep things clean and simple, I refrained from any mats under the two main panels - I think the double stitching of the bunny panel makes a good stand-in. The grey hare himself is coloured with Copics, with some Glossy Accents on the candle flame, and a touch of sparkle on the cupcake wrapper and (I couldn't resist) his nose. 

Funny thing is... I'll be back on Thursday with my post for Seize the Birthday

Supplies: Neenah white cardstock, Memory Box grey card base, Bella Blvd Sunny Skies patterned paper, Taylored Expressions Party Grumplings stamps, Versafine smoky grey ink, Wow clear gloss embossing powder, Copic markers, MFT double-stitched rectangle die, icicle Stickles, Glossy Accents

Pin It Now!

Your recipe has turned out wonderfully with your blending and seasoning choices! Mr. Grumpy Hare makes me laugh! Happy to see you in the JUGS gallery, too!

Love the grumpling and sentiment. I actually started a card for the CASe challenge last night with this exact orientation. Great minds do think alike.
