Introducing Warren The Rabbit!

Can it really be challenge 7 on Sketch and Stash?! It must be, as here is the sketch:

I happen to stumble across Tinker & Co blog the other day (must have been blog hopping!) and found these very sweet freebies to download! The rabbit (Warren - hahaha geddit?!) comes on a sheet of A4 in various sizes and Easter themed poses plus there are 4 other A4 printed sheets, two of which I have used here.

Apologies for the naffness of the photos - the colours are quite pinky and coral and not with a strange blue colour cast (it was early doors when I took the photos!)

Because, it seems, a baby boom is imminent (must be something in the water!) amongst work colleagues, friends and nursery staff, I thought I'd better add to the baby card stash. I know there is going to be at least one little girl, so I am now fully prepared!
I've cut the papers into squares, shaped the edges and inked with lilac Whispers and also bright pink (strange combination but it did work!) I neatly cut Warren and added some wire behind the flower he is holding to give it some strength, and then I added a bit of acetate so he bounces. Like a rabbit...... Sorry, could not resist!

Added some glitter glue to the centre of the flower (yes baby girls like bling!), a Studio G sentiment and some card candy.
I've more images of Warren so expect some more cards with him on! Tinker & Co are hoping to give a free download each month - Warren was the March freebie, so I'll certainly be looking out for the April one as I think they are so sweet!
