The Colors of Easter

Happy weekend everyone! I hope you are having a terrific day with a bit of time for crafting.

I've been checking out several challenges this week and had to jump in with both feet. There's so much Spring and Easter inspiration right now at so many blogs. So I had to pull out this image from Penny Black as it begged for soft pastel colors.

I'm entering this in several challenges...

Charisma Cardz - Spring theme
Colour Create Challenge - Pastel colors with an extra option of Spring or Easter
Trimmies Craft Challenge - Easter theme
Cute Card Thursday - Add dimensions and layers
Crafty Creations Challenges - Babies
Penny Black Friends - Butterflies & bees
The Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Pink, green and flowers
Sweet Stop Sketches - Sketch
Scrap Pile - 3 designer (scrap) papers
Sew Many Challenges - Punches
Daring Card Makers - Egg-citing
No Time To Stamp - Easter
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - Easter

Wow.. that was fun.. that's got to be my all-time record!  Think about checking out some of these challenges... there's so much great stuff to see. Thanks for stopping by today. 'Til next time, be safe in all you do.


Details: Penny Black stamp (title unknown), Neenah Solar White cardstock, SU pink and yellow cardstock, various DP's from my stash, Nesties butterfly die, MS fence punch, QuikKutz grass die, SU border punch, Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder, Prismacolor pencils, white gel pen, miniatures from my collection.
