Bunny and chick

Happy Weekend everyone! Hope it's a good one so far.
I am not feeling so good, started out with a tickle in my throat yesterday which just got worse, and now I am all achy and sore throat from this post nasal drainage. Hate it! I did want to finish this card today though. I was so excited yesterday as Sylvia Zet just released 4 new cuties yesterday which I just had to have and colored this one while I was still feeling sort of ok. Had all of the papers picked out and chose my sketch, so I did manage to put it together this morning.

Here it is.

Isn't this digi just the cutest!!! It's been colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil. The papers are all from my stash, they included Stampin up and My Minds eye double sided. Card base and layering was done with basic gray from Stampin up.

I embellished with some ribbon, prima flowers, punched out the butterfly and leaves using Martha Stewart punches, and added some sticky pearls to the flower and butterfly. I did some sewing too, but it didn't turn out too good. And then of course I had to apply some dazzling diamond glitter with a 2-way glue pen. I wish stickles glitter wouldn't make my digistamp ink run.

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:
That's all for today. I am going to have some soup now and then just do nothing for the rest of the day (like that's going to happen LOL).
