Snuggle Bunnies...

Good morning lovely friends
Happy Bank Holiday Monday to you all and I hope you have a good one whatever you are up to.

Today's card is for Dies to Die For - these Snuggle Bunnies are just too darn cute!
I really enjoyed making this card.
I created a background using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads, water and Distress Spray Stain.
I coloured those cute critters with Copics and sat them on a die cut vellum 'hill'.  The sentiment is by Marianne Design.

The frame is die cut and to finish I added a star charm and some silver twine by 
and here we are...snuggly friends star gazing!...
