Hunny-Bunny - Easter Card

I've had some darling Penny Black stamps in my possession for quite a while and have only used a couple of them. I don't know what I was waiting for! They are too cute and so much fun to color.  I mostly have Valentine stamps, but one of the images on the "Mimi + Miles" clear stamp set is this little bunny gal:

Tee hee! :)  She's ready for Easter (and just in time, too).  I used the K+Company Raspberry Fizz paper set, the edges inked with distress ink, some buttons and purple grosgrain ribbon from my stash. 

I was singing the song "Little Bunny Foo-Foo" while making this card, but I didn't have any sentiments that fit, and my handwriting wasn't cutting it.  The sentiment stamp I used is from Some Odd Girl's "Gwen In Bloom" clear stamp set that I recently won (thanks, Kristy!) and will be inking up soon.

I finished it off by machine-stitching around the outside.  You know... like I've been doing on every card I make these days.  I love the finishing touch.  Even when the needle jams in the middle of sewing a zig-zag up the ribbon....  *sigh* 

 I had a bunch of challenges in mind while making this card, so I will be linking up to the following fabby sites:
