Easter/spring cards

   It's the first Saturday in the month and that means time for the start of another challenge at Send a Smile 4 Kids and the theme this time is Easter or Spring cards. We have three generous sponsors again: Crackerbox Palace (3 Digis), The Cutting Cafe' (3 sets of digis or cutting files) and Kitchen Sink Stamps ($25 gift certificate).

   The first card I made used the  digi 'basket on a stump' from Crackerbox Palace. I coloured the eggs using Sakura Srardust gel pens to mimic the effect of silver foil wrapping. Everything else was coloured using Promarkers. I distressed the edges using distress ink before matting it onto gold mirri card.
   For the background I matted and layered yellow spotted paper onto gold mirri and white card. I then attached two strips of a different paper, one vertically and one horizontally and outlined them using gold peel offs to keep the depth down.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Without Words - the bunny is coming/Easter
   I Love Promarkers - distress those edges
   Inky Impressions - dots or stripes
   Animal Friends - Easter
   The Stamping Boutique - more than one layer

   My second card is a pocket shaped card and created from a pocket shaped digi from The Cutting Cafe'. The sun and flowers were also digis from The Cutting Cafe'. Again I coloured all using Promarkers. The leaves were die cut using a Crealies Creative shape die. I glued gems to the flower centres and coloured peel offs to form the sentiment.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Whoopsi Daisy - add a sentiment
   Allsorts - spring is in the air
   Brown Sugar - spring
   Creatalicious - no square or rectanular cards
   Fab 'n' Funky - shaped card
   Dream It Up! - marching into spring
   Suzy Bee's Bloomin' - anything goes with the twist a shaped card
