Caroling bunnies

This is for my CHNC challenge 139: cute. Please click on the link to see details of the challenge and, hopefully, join in - I'd love to see you there.

I've used the lovely cute 'caroling bunnies' digital image kindly supplied by one of the sponsors, Eureka Stamps, colouring with promarkers and flexmarkers.

This is an 8 x 8 card. Background papers are from my Christmas offcuts box, stitched ribbons from Hobbycraft. It was only after I'd stuck them down that I realised that I could have used up some pieces rather than use two lengths of 8" - nevermind! The image is mounted on to a lilac mirror card before being mounted on to the label die cut. The sentiment panels were with some free magazine papers. I brushed the edges of the label shape and the image picture with dusty concord distress ink.
