And now for my Card.


And this image is called "Easter Mischief" and you can guess what that means by the look of that little lad, and you will find him here. I have printed him onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I used a Easter Egg die from Nestabilites and drew around the die to create the mount out of aquamarine card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of the same aquamarine card, the papers are from Sweetshoppes "Basket of Blessings" and I have used three papers for my card, and layered them up as you can see. I then placed my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment below on the right, I did also use a smaller egg die for this and have stamped the sentiment on the smaller one.
The finishing touch is the Easter Egg buttons that were placed along the bottom in the left hand corner.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope you will pop across to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the extremely talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Easter Time" Challenge and I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
