Flipping Over SSD

Hello friends & followers!  I hope you had a wonderful Wednesday.  I am so happy that I was finally able to play in this week's Sketch Challenge 111 from Skipping Stones Design - I never used to miss one, but things got so hectic around the holidays and are just settling down.  Here is the sketch we were given this week by Pamela Young:
which I flipped of course because heaven forbid I leave a sketch alone (get the title now?  'flipping' over SSD?  LOL!) to create this card with SSD's Grey Hares set:
I morphed the circles into balloon shapes punched out from colors that coordinated with the 'streamer' patterned paper using Martha Stewart's balloon punch and created strings from them using twine and then had the hoppy bunny hold them by stamping his arm a second and sandwiching them between the popped up layers.  So, what do you think?  (BTW - Heather is having a sale over at SSD, if you were eyeing any of their sets, now would be an opportune time... just sayin'...).  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my creations and read my ramblings!  Have a wonderful evening!
