Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 181-Always Look for Rainbows

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I still haven't put away my new sets from the latest release from The Cat's Pajamas, so I inked one of the new sets up for this week's sketch.

I went with the big-eared bunny (love him!) from the Hare Today set for my card.  The bunny is colored with Copic markers--except for his umbrella, which I paper pieced with some rainbow striped paper. I cut out the image and used foam tape to attach it to a light blue panel with a debossed dot pattern.  The set's "always look for rainbows" sentiment is stamped next to the image.

Instead of using a fishtail flag piece at the top of the image panel, I substituted a pair of white felt clouds cut with the CutUps Cloud Border die.  The little scene is set on a yellow dotted panel with a rainbow striped panel, matching the pattern on the bunny's umbrella, at the left edge. 

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
