I chose Easter Egg Delivery by A Day For Daisies for my card – I loved the idea of a little sprite delivering the eggs, with the help of a kaleidoscope of butterflies!  The layout is based around the current sketch challenge over at Friday Sketch Challenge (flipped sideways):

I deliberately kept the design of the card quite flat as I will probably be posting this card off to my god-daughter in Sheffield, so I’d rather keep the postage down!  The papers are all from the Dovecraft Back To Basics III stack – my favourite for Spring themed cards at the moment!  After colouring the image with Pro-Markers, I softened the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to imitate the sky as a background.  The spots on the Easter Egg were added with a Sakura Jelly Roll pen – unfortunately they didn’t turn out quite as I had hoped, there are too many, too close and the sizes are too uneven! Finally a little touch of Stickles on the wings (although it is impossible to see in the photos!).

I chose Jingle Wreath by Meljen for my DT card.  I coloured the images with Pro-Markers, choosing Buttercup, Tulip Yellow and Mustard to create golden bells, added a red bow and then outlined in Tea Green to create a shadow.  Then I added little Stickles sparkle to finish it off!  For the background, I chose a plain red cardstock and paired it with the cream and red striped paper, which reminds me a little of candy canes, basing the layout around the current sketch over at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.


That’s it from me for today – trying hard to get organised for Christmas before school finishes for the holidays!
