Hoppy Birthday Card

This month over at Gerda's Steiner Designs Monthly Progressive Freebie challenge, Gerda created this adorable little jump-roping bunny for us to play with. Isn't he darling?! I had fun doing a print and cut of him using my Silhouette. Then I used Copic and MEXPY markers to color him and the "grass" around his feet.
I decided I wanted to create a little scene for him to do his jump roping, so I used my Papertrey Ink Scene It dies for some fun scenery behind the little guy. The round frame was made using a Gina Marie Designs stitched circle die around the Scene It Skyscapes die.
The card base is a 5X7 blank white card. I spritzed it with some Pearl Ex mixed with water in a mini mister spray bottle to make a background.
The "Hoppy" letters are from Top Dog Dies alphabet set, and the sun is from WPlus9 "Sunshine Layers" die set. The "Birthday" stamp is from Papertrey Ink's "One Big Happy" set.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
