AAA Cards Challenge #147 Along the Edge + Imspired by a Song. With video

This fortnight our challenge was chosen by Bharati. The theme is Along the edge and
the optional twist is : inspired by a song.
Out Sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays and I've used their Somebunny stampset.

There's a sentiment in the set "everybunny needs somebunny sometimes" that reminded me so much of the Blues Brothers' Everybody needs somebody to love..

So I've stamped my image and sentiment on the left side of the card with My Favorite Things hybrid ink and colored him with my alcohol markers.

I chose to use a dark brown grey color to mimic the black suits the Blues Brothers wear. I thought brown would be nice than ice grey. I did look to see if I had a sunglasses stamp and or die, but they were all too big, much to big.
After coloring I attached the panel to the cardbase and trimmed the card to neaten it up. White gel pen on the eyes for some shine.

Now that song is stuck in my head...Everybody needs somebody to love, someone to love, someone to love, love love

But if you'd like to play along the AAA Cards Challenge, or see more examples from our Design Team, see this.


  1. Singing that song on a loop now! Fab card and great choice of stamps and colours. Shame about the sunglasses - you should have drawn them yourself!

  2. Oh my, such a sweet card - what a cute bunny! Weirdly, before I read your blog post, I thought your song choice was a really old one, 'Everybody loves somebody' which starts off with 'everybody loves somebody sometimes'. I just googled it, it's by Dean Martin! A bit before our time!

    1. could well be the Blues Brothers made a cover, I only know their version, but their album is full of oldies and goodies, so thank you for the info

    2. ok that's not it;-) and I actually know it, i think from old movies I watche dwith my grandma after school

  3. Blues Brothers - yes! Love your take on the challenge and that is one of my fav stamp sets! That bunny just makes me smile! Great card!

  4. I love that you put so much thought in to your card! I really like it!

  5. much fun =) Tracie
