Bella and Bronte's Challenge


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi everyone! Hope you're having a great weekend so far!

I am back with another card!! So excited I got to make another card today while the kids were playing with their friends.

This week's challenge over at Mo Manning's challenge blog is "Distressing". Love distressing my edges, plus I love her digis so I decided to play along again this week.

For my card I used the first digi I have ever bought from Mo Manning. It so much reminds me of my little girl, who has a bunny that looks just like the one the girl in the image is holding. The image is called "Claire" and can be found here.

I colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and copics for the skin tones. I really like how these coloursoft turn out, and now they finally have a set of skin tones. I will be getting that very soon!!

I used papers from Stampin Up, and white Neenah card stock. Added some prima flowers and sticky pearls, and of course I distressed all of the edges using some scissors. Then I sewed around the edges. The sentiment is from Stampin Up (retired).
I really happy how this card turned out! But I guess any card using a Mo Manning image would turn out great!

Would love to enter this to the following challenges:
Thanks so much for visiting me today, don't forget to check out my Word Play Weekend Challenge #3 below, and if you play along you'll get a chance at having your card showcased as the card of the week next saturday!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
