Good morning! When I saw the Cards Blog Challenge for January - with a Paper Smooches prize pack, there was NOOOO way I could pass up the opportunity to join in on the fun! I am also linking this up to this month's Paper Smooches Anything Goes challenge. Here is what I made:
And here is the color inspiration to follow:

 I don't know about you - but something about this color challenge is simply LOVELY!!! And since I have been having so much fun with my Paper Smooches stamps lately - I absolutely HAD to pull them out for this challenge!
I started by building the scene using some Basic Grey papers. I used my MFT Die-namics grass border die for the grass, and used both the die cut, and the negative of the die to put behind the original.
Next, I stamped and used my Copic markers to color the funny little rabbit, fussy cut him out, and tucked his toes in the grass. Adhered both to the gray background with foam adhesive, then added some clouds I die-cut with my Lil' Inker Cloud Dies, also with foam ahesive. 
Finished off by scoring my card base around the edges to add a bit of a frame, stamped the sentiment on a hand trimmed banner with two different colors of PTI ink and attaching with foam adhesive, then attached the entire panel to my scored cardbase. 
LOVE all the fun dimension this card has!!! Thanks for stopping by!
