Challenge #103 - The Paper Shelter - "Easter"

Good Morning Crafters as promised the challenge for The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot week is also "Easter" so lots of opportunities for creating those cards for little people, as I have several of them in my family and friends I have created two cards for this weeks Challenge. Oh I nearly forgot I really must tell you that we have four new Design Team members joining us this week and they are Judith, Susan, Janie and Lydia I do hope that you will give them a rousing welcome to the Challenge Design Team and visit their blogs and leave them some love.
But Im getting ahead of myself and now I want to tell you that our sponsors are as always the very generous Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter, and they are offering a really fabulous prize of $30.


And of course we do have some rules, you must make sure you use one of their images on your cards to be sure to receive the whole amount, but even if you dont they are still going to give your 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really carnt loose with this Challenge.
And now I want to show you the two cards I have created then I will give you the links to the images and papers.

This Card is using "I am the Easter Bunny" Image

And this one is called "Easter Bunny"

Both of these cards will be on their way in the next few days and I do hope you dont mind me posting both of them, anyway the first one is "I am the Easter Bunny" and you will find her here, Ive used both the image and the papers for this card, and I will combine both of the cards in my write up as they both been done in the same way. The second card is "Easter Bunny" and Ive also used both the image and the papers and you will find him here. Ive printed both the images onto white card then used my copic pens to colour them both, afterwards I used the nested Egg Die for Nestabilities, and then drawn around the die to create the mounts.
I have used a pink and mount for the first card and a purple one for the second, and for the first one I wrapped a egg ribbon around the center downwards and placed my mounted image in the center, the sentiment was placed in the bottom right hand corner.
For the second one I used a egg stamp with several colours in the middle behind the mount image then cut out several of them from a separate piece of paper and after sticking the mounted image in the center I have placed the eggs around the edge of the circle on the mounted paper. The sentiment is from my stash which I felt went well with the image. To finish of I have used a Easter Chick button at the bottom and the end of the sentiment.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Easter" Challenge.

Thank you for entering the High Hopes Challenge. Unfortunately, you didn't use a High Hopes stamp, so your card does not qualify for the challenge.
