I'm a Guest DT..

over at Quirky Crafts this fortnight for Challenge 8 - Sparkly, Punch Easter and/or spring (
An Easter or Spring creation which must include something sparkly (gems, glitter etc) and use at least one punch.)!!
 They are being sponsored by Digital Delights this week and we were lucky enough to be given a few easter digi images to play with!!   All the images we were given are so cute but I'm not one to get right into easter as far as  making cards go so I found this a bit of a challenge!! I originally had the images as  a large size and went and bought some easter egg paper but when I sat down to make the card it just wasn't coming together!!! So I ditched the easter egg paper altogether, went to the feline playful website and looked for a sketch that I could use!!! Anyway, after chopping and changing a number of times I ended up ditching the sketch idea and came up with my own design!!!!!
So I coloured most of the image in with Tria Markers (B546, 0277, O729) and I coloured the eggs in with clear atyou spica pen to give it sparkle (not that it really shows up in the photo). I've also put Crystal effects on the ribbon on the egg and kindyglitz on the dots on the bottom half of the egg shell!! I also coloured the Easter sentiment in with Tria B546. I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the background, added some ribbon across the top, coloured the bigger white flowers in with Tria marker B546 and the smaller flowers in with the Clear spica pen!! The little flower on the sentiment is coloured with tria O277 and I added rhinestones to all the flowers!! I put the card all together then realized I was supposed to use a punch (oops) so all I did was move the bottom flowers, used the Stampin' Up eyelet border punch on both the base card and orange cs, then added the white card stock at the bottom and replaced the flowers!!! So I guess I better show you the card now!! :)

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
* Bee Crafty - Easter
* Delicious Doodles - Use ribbon for Easter
* Fairy Knoll - Eggs or Oval
* Paper Cutz Challenge - Image of Bunny, Lamb, Chick or Easter Egg

Before I go, I just wanted to say thanks again to the Quirky Crafts team for having me as a Guest DT this fortnight. I really enjoyed it and hope that I get the opportunity again as I love your challenges!! Thank you also to Digital Delights for the easter images!!!

Until Next Time... Enjoy!! xx
