Cardmaking with 'The Avenues' {Bo Bunny}

I just can't get enough of scrapping with the beautiful The Avenues collection, and I can't bear to throw my scraps away either.  This card was literally made of a few little scraps I had left over from other projects.  Quick and easy!

Here I just handcut two heart designs and machine stitched them for a homespun look.  Added some burlap and wrapped on some twine.  I topped it off with one of those adorable new wood clock embellishments!
Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Antique, Dot, Stripe/The Avenues
Jewels: The Avenues
Kraft Wood Clocks

I just love all the shutter, door, window and clock designs in this collection!  Using these little design elements make it quick and easy to create a fun and cheerful card.

I created blooms in just the shade of peachy pink I was looking for by using the coordinating patterned papers to hand-make my blossoms.  I used some kitchen cheesecloth to make my curtains for my card design.

BEAUTIFUL OMW! Love these cards~
Love the textural feel for sure w/the twine and burlap -
also the 'curtains'!
The CL window is so pretty!
