Happy Dance

Hello again!  The card I'm sharing today uses an adorable stamp I've had for a while but had not yet inked up, but when I saw the color challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts, I knew the time was right to use it.  It's also to help celebrate the 200th challenge at Friday Mashup, where the challenge is to use two "mashup" challenges together.  I chose #151 (shaped card) and #121 (use the word happy).

After coloring this cute little fellow, Ovals Collection framelits were used to cut out the card base, the stamped image and the slightly larger mat.

The colors in the PPA challenge were perfect for Spring or Easter, but since this is going to my grand kids, one of which is a 12-year old boy, I decided the Kraft card stock would pedal back the cuteness factor a bit for him.  ; - )

The lightest Crumb Cake Blendability marker was used to color the bunny, going over certain parts a second time with the same marker to create a bit of shading.  This exuberant image just makes me smile!

As always your visit and comments are so appreciated!  Be sure to use the links above to check out all the fabulous inspiration, plus there is still time to play along with both challenges.  Hope you have a great week ahead!
