Oh Happy Day Card!


Happy Earth Day! My plan for this afternoon is to plant a few flowers in my front yard to make things a little prettier. I can't go too crazy planting just yet, we have a cold snap in the forecast for later this week. The card I'm sharing with you today was made from a recycled/re-purposed coffee sack from The Fresh Market. Not only did the sack make a pretty card but it smells yummy. This Oh Happy Day Card is nature inspired and features one of my favorite animals, the rabbit. We have cottontails in our area, so I added a little cotton to the punched little rabbits tails. The tree image by Hampton Art was heat embossed with Gumball Green and Early Espresso embossing powders by Stampin' Up! and I did a little sponging with light blue to create the sky. For the finishing touches I added a yellow embosslit butterfly and some natural twine. Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!
