Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 65 - Easter!

Our challenge this week is set by Doreen. She has chosen Easter for her theme, so we'd like to see any project you make as long as it has an Easter theme.

We are sponsored for this challenge by

Who are offering a $10 Gift Certificate for their Store to the challenge winner


This week, I got to work with a really pretty image from Digi Doodle Shop - called Splendid Flowers.
 I started with the image, and some beautiful Kate Knight paper that came recently with an issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I coloured the image with Promarkers in magenta and violet shades, and mounted it ont a mat cut using a Spellbinders die in my Wizard. Then, I did something I haven't done for years ... I looked out my peel offs. I've got loads, but they're normally buried at the back of the cupboard. But, I don't have any stamps with Easter greetings on them, and I didn't want to hand-write and the printer wasn't available, so ...

I threaded some pretty silver ribbon through the holes in the mat, and that's it! I did make a flower to add, but I preferred the card without it, so it'll go into my box for another day!

Hope you can join us this week.
