I have a soft spot in my heart for bunnies and this bunny from the Midwinter set is extra sweet! I wanted to make him a focal point so I placed him on a bed of branches made with the ODBD Fancy Foliage dies.

I'm playing along with the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today, the FS is Mayapple, she has a wonderfully whimsical gallery, full of fun creations! It was so hard to pick a favorite, but I chose this one, I love the sweet hedgie and adorable scene.
I decided to cut out my critter with a MFT Double Stitched Circle Die-namics after heat embossing and water coloring with markers. I was looking through my paper pads when I found this black piece covered in Christmas greetings, I had originally planned on adding a greeting, as in Mayapple's card, but decided to let the dp do it for me. The green polka dot paper was dry embossed with a Stampin Up Snow EF. I sponged the main image and scalloped border and added a MFT bow die-namics, holly die and enamel dots.
