Sneaky Peek Day 4- Wish

Greetings all! We are now on day 4 of TCP's 'Sneaky Peek Week' and the anticipation of the new release is so thick that you can practically cut it with a knife ( or better yet, one of the 4 new Cutup dies;)! Today we are previewing one of my favorite sets on the release list, 'A Girl and Her Cake'. I am in love with this big-eared-bunny and I'm so happy that 'she' is officially a girl in this set! Great for all those sweet lil girls in your life, and big girls too! After all, everyone loves cake!

Instead of colouring Miss Bunny, I stamped her on a light patterned paper, pieced her nose, tail and the cake. I airbrushed my spellbinders die (YG00) before I glued the bunny down, and left her ears up a bit using 2 dimensionals. The cake is of course chocolate and thus iced with chocolate fudge icing (thick and gooey)..I love liquid pearls for icing- so fun and realistic looking I think! I also added some stickles to her tail and the candles, and a pretty green bakers twine bow in place of the stamped bow. I cut a banner with an SU die and stamped the 'Wish' sentiment onto patterned paper (same as bunny) punched with the oval SU punch and matted with SU's scalloped oval punch. The bottom portion of the spellbinder is dry embossed with a swiss dot folder. I used both straight stitching and zigzag to add some interest. And the finishing touch are the divine SU rhinestones (I dotted my 'i' with one too:)
The sketch that I based this card layout on is SSSC for this week (I think?? LOL)
And again, I have to apologize for the sickening colour of these pictures, but I didn't get my card done in time to photograph in the daylight:( I might edit tomorrow....

Okay folks, that's it for today! See you back here tomorrow for a really super cute and exciting peek! It's gonna knock your boots off!
