Aud Sentiments Challenge #75 Easter/Spring Sentiment


Hi everyone, it's time for some more inspiration for the current challenge at Aud Sentiments.  I hope you are enjoying this challenge which is of course...

EASTER/SPRING SENTIMENT

Our sponsor this time is Prairie Fairy Designs
 
 
I have used Just Ducky for my first card.
 
 
I have made my favourite - an easel card. The image has been coloured with Promarkers, and the glasses have been glazed and I used a sakura startdust gel pen for the rims. A few pearls artfully placed and some lovely green ribbon to finish it off.
 
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-
 
 
The Ribbon Girls Challenge - Ribbon/Twine,
 
 
 
The Ribbon Carousel Challenge - Spring is in the air,
 
Party Time Tuesdays - Die Cuts,
 
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes,
 
 
Creative Card Crew - Ribbon, and,
 
Passion for Promarkers - Card for a lady/girl.   
 
My second card has been made using Spring Ducks...
 
 
and here it is again with a couple of interested visitors!!!
 
 
They love to lend a helping paw!
 
This was a precoloured image which I have just die cut and layered onto a paper from a Nitwits collection called Egg-stra Special. The ribbon and butterfly are from Hobby Craft and were actually bought for the children to use but I sort of borrowed some!!! I think I went overboard with the pearls but I like the effect. The butterfly is covered in crystal glitter - hope you can make it out.
 
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-
 
 
Flutterby Wednesdays - Open but must have a butterfly or fairy,
 
Heck of a Challenge - Spring/Butterflies and pearls,
 
Dream Valley Challenge - Ribbon and bling,
 
Forever friends Challenge - Lots of flowers, and,
 
 
 Don't forget to check out the blog for more inspiration.
 
Hugs

What a wonderful card. It is delightful. Thank you so much for entering it in this week's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday.

P.S., LUV your helpers. I have one of those, too, but she prefers to get in on the "creative" aspect and tends to steal my supplies (grin).
