I know who else loves bunnies - my dear friend Sharon - she's the one that wrapped a present for me using the "in the garden" ribbon you see at the top of the card. I've been wanting to use this ribbon on a card for ages - I'm so glad I found the perfect image to go with the ribbon.
This cute bunny and the sentiment is from the current Stampin' Up! Catalog - it's called Serene Spring.
The card base is scored on the edge and bottom using a bone folder and Friskars Personal Trimmer. Added the beautiful velvet scalloped ribbon on the left edge. The Cuttlebug Birds & Swirls Embossing Plate was used to create the blingy background - I ran the Martha Stewart Glue Pad over the embossed paper then covered it with Martha Stewart Blue Topaz Glitter. Hint: hold it over a trash can and brush with a stiff brush to remove all the excess glitter.

Pumpkin Pie was one of the colors in the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge today - which reminded me of the "Vintage Finds Earrings Orange" over at my daughter Julie's Shop on Etsy. They are the cutest things:
