Scandinavian Christmas

Christmas in July has caught everyone's attention this week!  I'm always up for making Christmas cards. :)  To me, this rabbit is a nod to the St. Lucia celebration my Swedish relatives celebrate.
I used a ridiculous number of Copic markers to color this image!  Me being me, I had to add some sparkle via Stickles and Spicas.  Disclaimer- this one did not take 10 minutes. :)  I really did try to go with clean lines here, but it looked too plain.  I HAD to add the flowers and then it still looked a little off so I HAD to add the buttons.  I tried.  Really, I tried.  I just had to add some umph.  Whaddaya think?
