Vintage Rabbit Card

We have some beautiful Gecko Galz digital images and papers from Leanne to use in our March design team work.  I made a card for the challenges using the following Gecko Galz items:
Paddington from the Victorian Blues 8"x10" paper pack
and
these wonderful vintage looking rabbits from the Bunny Trail digital stamp set

Papers and ribbon are a rich chocolate brown.  I altered the digital rabbit image from black to brown.  I also resized the Paddington paper to layer on the 6-1/2" x 5" brown card and resized the rabbit image so that I could emboss it with the Cuttlebug Tiffany embossing folder. The rabbits are printed on textured cardstock for a linen look.


Here are the challenges I'm entering with this shabby vintage card. 

due March 18

3 sites I just discovered (all badges and links are on my sidebar 2/3 way down under "Challenges That Call My Name").   This is my first entry for these three "new to me" sites:
due March 16



I've used Prima and Flying Unicorn flowers for these two flower challenges
