Oh Well, Fluffy Bunny It Is!

It was recently my brother-in-law's birthday and he is a keen cyclist. I tried to find a picture of a road cyclist and even put out pleas for help on the Docrafts forum. I had some wonderful offers back but nothing I felt would be spot on. Found some images on searching the internet but they were photo images and I am a keen stamper and like to colour the images myself. 

After a lot of umming and ahhing I decided to opt for something else, wait for it..........a fluffy bunny. Can you believe it? What came over me? What grown man wants a fluffy bunny on his birthday card for goodness sake. By the time I had been searching for an image his birthday was looming so I had to make a quick decision or there would be no card at all. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).

Here is the finished article:

The image is a download from Bee Crafty Downloads, coloured with Prismacolor pencils.
Sentiment is from a Stampendous set called Petals Plus.
Added a button threaded with some natural jute.

I know that he liked the present as it was something he actually asked for so at least that went better.

I have to say I am very excited as I have made a card for my niece for her birthday and it is a bit different. Can't share it on here yet as my sister is a follower and may get an early peep. Shall post it once the birthday has gone.

Thanks for looking.
