Colour Create, Penny Black and Cupcake DT Call



Isn't this little stamp adorable. I purchased it at the Make It show a few weeks ago as I just couldn't resist. A mum at the school asked me to make an Easter card for her. Haven't made many Easter cards before so was nice to do something beyond birthdays . I dont do many commsioned cards either, so it was nice to be asked. The paper is from my new K & Co "Cut & Paste" stack. I remember seeing a page with a cute chick on so new this would be ideal for the card. I used the colours from this weeks Colour Create Challenge which is Orange, Yellow and Green and the recipe from this weeks Penny Black challenge. Coloured with Copics, and white Inksenntial pen. The Flowers are new from Calico Crafts and the Wire Ribbon which I love is from Ribbon Box. Sentiment from Woodware. I didn't want to over embellish the card as I felt it would loose the background. Cupcake Crafts also have a DT Call out at the moment, so I thought Why Not! You've got to be in it to win it so to speak. The card theme is Spring, just like the weather here today, windy but sunny and the Crocus's on the village green are now in full bloom. My mojo is flowing atm and am really enjoying my cardmaking. Have a lovely week!
