Happy Easter

I am back to share something a little bit cute today, just to' mix it up a bit!'  One of the things about selling your cards is that you have to do a variety of styles, not all of them your own 'comfort zone!'

I have had this image for over two years *head hung in shame* and decided it was time to get it onto a card, especially with Easter approaching so quickly.

I have cute the image out using the Spellbinders Labels Twenty One, using the Die Template as a mask before taking the image out - I always love the look of this technique.  My Die has been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine .  Some added Bakers Twine and a button.

Shimmer added to the egg shell - using 3D Kindy Glitz

Finishing off with a sentiment and some brads. 

This card is for the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks - Easter
Aud Sentiments Challenge - a project with the sentiment "Happy Easter"
Charisma Cardz - Easter
Crafty Purple Frog - Anything goes
Moving Along With The Times - Cute and Cuddly
Paper Play - Easter
My Mum's Craft shop - use a rubber stamp
Ruby's Rainbow - Easter  
Top Tip Tuesday - Easter & or Animals
