Cheerful stamp pad challenge 107 week 2

This is my design card for the second week of the Cheerful stamp pad 107: in the garden. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in with your garden creations. You can enter the challenge here.

I've made an Easter card using a piece of Pink petticoat Wild Blossoms paper for the background with a striped band across the middle (an offcut from some paper that came with a magazine). I die cut the Stitchy Bear Kaz Kraftz 'beary happy bloom', kindly supplied by the sponsor, having coloured with Chameleon pens. I lightly brushed the edges of the die cut with victorian velvet distress ink before removing from the die. The Happy Easter ribbon and the eggs were originally from Poundland, quite a while ago.

Colours and flowers etc inspired by Pinspirational 136:
