Bunny love

Happy weekend everyone! Can I start off by thanking all my followers and those who leave comments, it really means a great deal to me. I've been off work since August and have only felt well enough to blog since January and I'm sure the wonderful blogging community has contributed to my recovery. You really are all wonderful creative and caring people.
Today's card was inspired by this one by Pen sunshinepen. I wanted to make a card for someone on the rabbit forum who lost her bunny suddenly and is going through a tough time generally. I used clarity stamping card and stamped and masked off the bunny and put a mask down for the moon. I cut a wavy cloud shape out of paper and built up the sky with a mini blender tool and distress ink. I did try using a smoothie but I discovered that the starlight paint was still clinging in the foam and the teeny tiny sparkle in the paint transferred to my distress inkpads, so they now sparkle! I used a torn bit of copier paper and the same technique to add the land. I stamped in a few grasses from the wee foliage set in black and a branch across the moon and a bit of shadow to the moon. To add a bit of shimmer I added some clear wink of Stella to the moon. I die cut and layered it up and stuck it onto coredinations card with foam tape and stamped the sentiment from lili of the valley.
Now, I know I've bored you to death about last weekend, but I unpacked my apron this morning and found my name badge on it so I have to share!

And finally another bit of crafting by someone else. I was lucky enough to be drawn out of the cup of chance on create and craft a few weeks ago when craftwork cards were on with cute bunnies and this arrived a few days later in the worlds biggest padded envelope, considering the card is about 5x5 and the envelope was A3!
