For this card all of my supplies were purchased at DAT'S Scrapbooking our LSS in town. Here is what I used:

First I used Bo Bunny Welcome Home 6x6 paper pack and Stampin' Up Early Espresso and Very Vanilla Cardstock to create my card base.

I used C.C Designs Stamps and Momento Ink for my image. I then coloured it with my copic markers.

I used the Scallop Circle Nestabilities and some more Bo Bunny Welcome Home paper to embellish the background of my card. 

I embellished the card with Stampin' Up Scallop Edge Punch,  some miscellaneous ribbon from my stash and some stick on pearls from Kaiser Craft. I also used my sewing machine and white thread to stitch around my image and the outside of my card. 

I used my computer to create the sentiment then punched it out with 1 3/8" circle punch. I then used some more Early Espresso cardstock and the 1 1/2" circle punch to create a mat for the sentiment.
