House Mouse and Friends Blog Hop and Challenge

House Mouse and Friends is having its first blog hop/challenge, using any House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies stamp, using this sketch for your design:

I had made a few Valentines before last night, but none matched the sketch completely, so I worked on another:

Here is what I used for the card:
Stamp:  Stampabilities Happy Hoppers (House Mouse) "Love Bunny" HMI1014.
Colored pencils:  Prismacolor, Derwent and EK Success.
Chalk:  Pebbles Pearlescent Shimmers (around bunny).
Paper, background:  K & Co. Smitten Valentine tablet of 12 x 12 papers.
Paper lace, light pink:  American Crafts paper in Baby/Miss Muffit, cut with Fiskars heart edge punch.
Paper lace, brown:  American Crafts paper in Baby/Miss Muffit, reverse if light pink dot, cut with Martha Stewart double edge doily lace trim punch.
Raspberry square:  Bazzill pearlescent in Feather Boa, embossed with Swiss Dots folder in Cuttlebug, cut with Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Squares, Large.
Sentiment:  K & Co. Smitten banners.
Pearls:  Recollections half-pearl stickers.
Miscellaneous:  Pink Gelly Roll Stardust pen on hearts above bunny's head.
