Sweet Sunday Bunny Cake

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC101. You'll find the sketch on Karen Giron's blog The Sweetest Thing.

I decided to flip the sketch this week so I could use another new-to-me set from The Cat's Pajamas, Forget About the Cake. I made this card with my dad in mind...he's celebrating a big 'ole milestone birthday in March and one of the sentiments reads "you're not getting older, you're getting a lot older"...which would be just perfect for him! LOL!!! If I decide to use this card for him then I'll add the sentiment on the inside, but for now I left the sentiment off just in case I come up with something else.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice snow white and coloured with copics. I cut out the cake (including his paws) and popped it on foam tape for dimension. I added yellow Stickles to the candles then covered the bunny with white Fun Flock. The patterned papers are from the Echo Park Little Boy collection...such fun colours!! I did some zig zag sewing around the oval and only messed up at one little spot...can you find it? I can't believe how much easier it is to zig zag around an oval or circle rather sewing a straight line! I also picked up the Inside Pinking border die from TCP because it's a fabulous option for masculine cards...I was getting tired of always using stars...ugh.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created, and we have a brand new Sweet Sunday Stamper on the team...Dana White! Yay Dana!!!! Be sure to give her a warm welcome!
