Remember my quilt-inspired DT inspiration?

I decided once again to use that "Backside Bunny" found at

But I think you will find it makes a far different card...

here are some of the things I used to start off with.

I used the Indian Financial Times - first to print my digi on and then to cut some Tim Holtz rosettes. I cut out and distressed the edges of the bunny with 'wild honey' and then spritzed some of this ink with water to add colour to my rosettes.

Shopping in India I recently found some lovely hand-made paper...

I used the purple with gold flecks to make my first layer - I started with a shaped card blank which I distressed around the edges with 'shabby shutters'. I then added a circle of the purple paper which has a lovely texture.
I added the bunny and rosette with final touches of the ribbon and sentiment (this was just printed on my computer, die cut with an oval nesting die and mounted on more of my purple.

Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!
