Cupcake Challenge 229

Hello everyone, today on Cupcake Challenge 229 it is my turn to choose the challenge and I created a sketch. This week we are sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads and she is giving us a $10 gift certificate as a prize. I am also entering this card into Tilda's Town Challenge 39 where the theme is anything goes.

A few weeks ago I posted some cupcake toppers that I made for a baby shower, well my sister also asked me to make an invitation to give to her firend who is expecting. She doesn't know if she is having a girl or a boy so I went with a pink and blue combo once again. I was looking through my stamps to find an appropriate image and I thought this Magnolia bunny was perfect. He is called Bog Hoppy from the Magnolia Hoppy Easter Collection 2010, he is coloured with copics and I used antique linen and vintage photo distress inks to distress the edges and I finished it off with some stitching. The DP is from Teresa Collins and each piece was distressed like the image and stitched. The die cuts are a Magnolia DooHickey and the sentiment was computer generated. I finished off with some ribbon, lace and pearls.

For the inside I created the wording on my computer, distressed it with inks and added a Magnolia postage stamp to the corners from the Magnolia With Love Collection 2013. The DP is from the same Teresa Collins pad and I finished off with some blue ribbon.

Finally, an angled shot!
