Zombie Rabbit Attacks!

It was an interesting evening at the Guild Hall last night. One of the house gnomes found an injured rabbit while doing a sweep of the grounds before locking up for the night. He brought him inside, insisting the poor creature could be saved. As I was surely unable to reach the village healer at this hour, I called upon a white mage that I knew was passing through town and lodging at the inn for the next couple of days. The mage arrived and began her magic upon the rabbit. Before she could finish her healing spell, the rabbit arose and began feasting upon the flesh of a rat that was scuttling by! It was a zombified rabbit! The white mage and I managed to defeat it in battle, getting lucky on a couple of rolls. It was a good thing she was there to help. Imagine the carnage should that rabbit have awoken during the night. The rabbit, although a zombie, was super cute and inspired me to create a card (as most of these encounters tend to do).

Errr...don't mind the corner of my ink pad in the picture; I needed something to hold the card shut while I took a picture. Here's what it looks like opened:
The bunny image is from Meljen's Designs which I won with the cupcake card from another crafting quest. I coloured him up using Prismacolors. I then used the Lawn Fawn set "On the Mend" and stamped the turtle with the water bottle on his back, and just cut out the water bottle to put on the bunny's head. It just fit so perfectly. This earned me +40 dress up exp points. The sentiment is also from that same set. 
That cute tissue box and sentiment inside the card also came from "On the Mend". I also used the little bug from that same set to create a subtle patterned paper on the orangey-brown paper. It's a little more noticeable in person.
I used the bugs on the inside panel of the card as well. I just couldn't leave that panel "plain" and those bugs are just too cute not to use! 
I used the little bug on the envelope as well. I also used the little "bug trail" from the Lawn Fawn "Happy Summer" set. 

This super cute get well card will be entered into the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge Blog Challenge #156: Cute as a Button
Card Crafter's Circle Challenge #36: Rich and Earthy Colours!
Lawnscaping Challenge #40: Make your own patterned paper with stamps

I'm glad the Lady Commander wasn't here to witness the slaughter of the cute zombie rabbit. Hopefully she doesn't find out.
