Aud Sentiments Challenge #51 Midway Reminder - Happy Easter


Hi everyone, it's Thursday and time for some more inspiration for the current challenge at Aud Sentiments which is ......

"HAPPY EASTER"

and you can play along here.

Our sponsor is A Day For Daisies

and here is my card...............


Not a colour scheme I have used before but I had the paper already printed off and decided to use it for the theme. It is from Nitwits and called Egg-stra Special Collection. I have distressed the edges and coloured them with TH Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade. I have also used this to colour the American seam binding. The flowers were from the Hobby Craft shop - about two years ago now!!!!!
I have used whitewash Core'dinations card for the embossed card using the Cuttelbug folder - Floral Fantasy. The butterfly is from a Papermania Urban set called Botanical Print - stamped onto the paper and cut out.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:-

Paper Sundaes - Happy Easter,

Polka Doodles - Easter theme and a fantastic Blog Hop with great prizes,

Lexi's Creations - Focus on the sentiment,

Hooked On Crafts Challenge - Easter,

Flutterby Wednesday - Butterfly, Angel or Fairy,

Hugs
