Easter card




I wanted to make a card for the Anything Goes challenge theme of Easter on Craftswap Forum, and also decided to try out the sketch challenge on the Craft Stamper blog. In the magazine blue and yellow were used and I went along with that colour scheme, partly because I rarely use yellow, but also because they are good colours for Easter. I've been 'cuttling' again - this time I used the Swiss Dots folder and Distress Ink in Faded Jeans to make one of the panels. On the other two I have used some of the new Tim Holtz stamps (Slight Alterations) to create some background colour and texture. The boy and eggs are stamps by Art Journey. And yes, I have used a peel-off! I have got a 'Happy Easter' stamp somewhere but could I heck find it!!!
