After finishing my latest scrapbook layout using some Doodlebug Design papers, I used the paper scraps to make a card. This week's Cat's Pajamas challenge (#316) theme was Summer, which went perfectly with the bright papers. Using the Mojo Monday sketch #452 as inspiration, I pulled out the In Shape set and decided it would make for a great retirement card. The ones I had in my stash have been selling, so it was time to replenish that theme.
On a whim, I decided to pull out my Watercolor Wonder crayons (remember those?) to color the image. I hadn't used those in years. I struggled a big initially to get the look I wanted, but finally ended up with a look I liked enough. The clouds were also watercolored using the Clear Wink of Stella brush to make them sparkly. The bunny image was die-cut using the Layering Squares Framelits dies from the new SU! catalogue.
For the envelope, I stamped part of the cute bunny in pink on the front. And since half of the image was missing...
...I thought I could stamp the rest on the back!
