Let's craft and create challenge 111

This is my design card for Let's craft and create challenge 111: Easter. Please click on the link to see the beautiful designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in with your Easter projects.

I used the lovely Personal Impressions Easter stamp by Graham Pilkington, colouring with chameleon pens and cutting out by hand before adhering to the scalloped edge die cut. I then matted this on to the die cut with the cut edges, raising it up with a double layer of 3D foam, then matting this with two layers on to the torn yellow oval. The background with the chicks is vellum. I used a scrap of the striped yellow paper under the dimensional spring strip from Hobbycraft (quite a while ago).

  49. Lovely colors in this project. We are so blessed with your participation in our previous Challenge and would love to have you back for our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you the inspiration of God's Word from Habakkuk 2:3-4 and it says, " For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. “See, the enemy is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness---." Have an awesome week!
