Vintage Thanks

I love this sweet digital Kewpie image from Crafty Secrets. It says, love, to me. That lil' bunny and his kewpie friend.  Sometimes a hug is all we need to know we are not alone in this big world. 
I went back to my comfortable color palette.  Soft pastels of pink, white, cream, and blue.  It's like an old pair of jeans that you throw on because they are broken in. Comfortable. Familiar.  
The image was colored with Copics and cut out using a Spellbinder's die.  I inked the edges a bit. 
The card shape was cut using my Silhouette. The rosette is a quilling kit from Provo Craft. I also added a doily. The flower was created using coffee filters and Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I added a bit of ribbon, coordinating string, and a few sequins to finish it off. 
I have so much left to do this week and am in a bit of a panic hoping I can get it done.  Sometimes I load my plate a bit too full and then I kick myself later for doing that to myself! 
So wish me luck that everything I need to do gets done!
Have a great Wednesday!
Hugs to you all my sweet Kewpies! ;)
