Just a hare late

I just realized last night that I had two Red Hat birthdays this week that I forgot to send cards, so I searched and found this coloring book image online.  I knew I could find rabbits in top hats, but this one with an Easter bonnet was perfect.

You may be wondering why the hats are purple if they are going to Red Hatters.  It is part of the Red Hat Tradition that on their birthdays, instead of the usual red hat with a purple outfit, they can wear a purple hat with a red outfit.

The painted paper is something I quickly whipped up with red, violet, and pearl acrylic paints and a squeegee.  It looks less gray and more pearl in real life.  It adds that bit of texture that says "I did art on your card".  I didn't like the aspect ratio that much on the image, so I used the Out Of the Box technique on the second one.

On the inside it says, "Happy Birthday, just a hare late".

Love your background. Your images are adorable of course,( Liking the out of the box one) but what really catches my eye is the backgound.

Oh this is so cute- I love the bunny in the purple hat- I have never heard of the Birthday tradition of the purple hat. The background you created looks very pretty.
