EMBOSSED BUNNY

Hello.  I spent the weekend in Hollywood visiting my two daughters.  There was a little drama on Friday before I left.  To begin with my daughters condo complex caught on fire.  Luckily she lives on the other side.  She had to evacuate in her robe, with her two dogs.  She was interviewed on the news.  Sadly one of the residents lost their dog in the fire.  Then I went to print my boarding pass and somehow the reservation wasn't showing up.  After many phone calls I got it fixed.  The trip was so much fun  we celebrated our birthdays together.  But I am glad to be in my quiet little town.
I made this card for my son.  Do you think he will notice the pink eye?  I used the card feature on Birthday Bash.  I made the ruffled collar by gathering some crinkle ribbon that I won from LITTLE SCRAP PIECES.  By the way they are having a "Make Your Own Embellishment" Challenge.  FCCB is having an Easter Challenge.  Die Cutting Divas are having an "Embossing With Ribbon" Challenge.  and DL.ART is having an Easter Challenge. Also BBTB2 is having a use a cricut card feature challenge.
