The bunny is so cute and hard to resist his sweet face!

Use Stampin' Up! Catalogs for inspiration!

If you found the bunny card a little bit familiar, that is because it was inspired by the layout from the kangaroo card on page 26 of the Annual Catalog.   Even though the original sample is from the Animal Exhibition Suite, it works perfectly with the adorable bunny image, don't you think? 

So don't forget, Stampin' Up! catalogs make for a great resource to use when you are feeling "stuck" on a layout.
