For today's card, I used a few new stamps from Lawn Fawn's Fall/Winter 2014 release. I used the cute bunny from the "Snow Day" set and the cute mug from "Love You A Latte." I colored them both using Copic Markers. 
Bunny: W0, W2, R20
Mug: R81, R85
I cut both images using the coordinating dies. In order to get the bunny to sit into the little mug, I used my craft knife to cut a slit along the inside of the mug. The bunny fit into the mug just perfectly!
For the first background, I used Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed distress inks to watercolor the background. I did this by smooshing my ink pads onto my craft mat and applying the ink with a paintbrush and water. Once my watercolor panel was completely dry, I heat embossed the sentiment from the "Hello Baby" set using gold embossing powder.
For the second background layer, I used the new "Argyle Backdrops" set and repeatedly stamped the outline. I used the small heart included in "Snow Day" and stamped it repeatedly to make a pattern with the argyle outline. I then heat embossed the entire background with gold embossing powder.
To add a little bit more gold, I took a piece of cardstock a little bit bigger than my watercolor panel and smooshed Versamark ink all over it. I then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I just absolutely love how it tied in all of the gold on the card and created such a shiny effect!

To assemble the card, I used the stitched rectangle die from the Mama Elephant "Femme Frames" set to cut my gold argyle background. I then used the scallop border die for the cardbase. To finish the card, I added some matching Pretty Pink Posh sequins. 

And that's it for today's card. I absolutely love how the card came out and I really enjoyed using my new Lawn Fawn goodies. Thanks again for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful weekend! ♥
