Let's Fly Away!

Happy Friday Friends! Hope that you all had a great week! It's been raining for a couple of days here in New England (hence the darker photographs from that last few posts), but we've still been able to accomplish quite a bit around the house.

My card for today is for this week's Blogger's Challenge (theme...travel) and for the TCP Tuesday Challenge (make a rolled rose out of seam binding.) If you would like to play along with these challenges, just click on the colored words for the links. I have been wanting to use this adorable bunny from the Take Off set from The Cat's Pajamas for awhile now and the travel theme was the perfect excuse. I colored him up with Copic Markers (BG000, C1, C2, YG25, YR12, and YR16) and I paper pieced part of his plane. All of the patterned papers are from Jillibean Soup. The clouds were made with the Cloud Border CutUps from TCP and I used some Mango Seam Binding from TCP too. I {heart} the way that the seam binding rose turned out. It was easy to do and I really like how it seems to tie the bow together. Alma has a tutorial to make the blossoms on her blog if you'd like to give it a try. (Just click on the link above.)

That's about all for this evening. Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D
