Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  I used a set from the most recent release from The Cat's Pajamas on this super sweet design.  Be sure to read to the end of this post--there's some big news from TCP that you don't want to miss!

You Make Life Sweet card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas
I stamped the big eared bunny in an ice cream bowl from the Life Is Like Ice Cream set on a white panel.  The image was colored with Copic markers, with the exception of the paper pieced umbrella.  After coloring the image, I used foam tape to adhere it to the center of a paper doily.

I adhered the doily to a cardfront covered with a piece of pink polka dotted paper and cut the doily's left side so it was flush with the edge of the paper panel.  I edged the opposite side of the pink dotted panel with a pale pink cardstock strip cut with TCP's CutUps Queen of Hearts die, then tucked a contrasting yellow striped paper strip beneath it.  After adding a pair of coordinating banner strips cut with the banner die from CutUps Framed Up 2 die, I wrapped a piece of cream seam binding around the panel and secured it with a knot.  Instead of using one of the sentiments that came with the Life Is Like Ice Cream set, I used a sentiment from the Lickable set.  This set is also an ice cream themed one and the "you make life sweet" sentiment was just perfect with the image.
