This Tuesday's Challenge at the Jacksonbelle Embellishments Blog is to make a card or project with an Easter Theme. Just link your card to the challenge post or use keyword JBE098 if you upload to a gallery.
I usually don't make many Easter cards, but this year I fell in love with this fun What's Crackin'? stamp set from My Favorite Things. I combined fun springy papers from Pink Paislee's 360 Degree Collection and Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl, which worked perfectly for the Just Us Girls Color Challenge. The chicks were stamped on yellow DP and I cut them out and paper pieced the cracked egg shells & colored the beaks with orange glitter pen.
I used the sketch from Everything But the Kitchen Sink and for the scalloped border on the bottom of the sketch, I applied strong adhesive across the card base and used my fingers to fold & ruffle vintage lace for the Caardvarks Lacy Days Challenge. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers' Express Yourself Easter Set.
