Child's Easter card

The theme on ABC this week is C for child's card, so I thought I would start making some Easter cards for children (will need some for Saturday week). I used PM papers from last year, sticky ribbons, Poundland 3D shaker stickers and a couple of gems.

I followed the sketch on the new Truly Scrumptious challenge blog - their first challenge:

On Scrapstars forum we are also being asked to show a Springtime card, so this is appropriate for that.

Cuttlebug sketch

Just scraping in at the last minute with a card for this lovely sketch by Valerie, which is the inspiration this week on Cuttlebug:

The papers and chipboard pieces are all BG Boxer and the sentiments are rub ons. The strip with the scalloped edge has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder:

Winter blues

'Winter blues' - no, I'm not referring to the way I feel, but to my ATCs for the February Tanda swap: 'blue'[.

I apologise to Tasha and the group that these are late.

I used the winter tree stamp from the Whispers four seasons stamps, with blue iris chalk ink on to DCWV textured card. The background paper is a stripey one from HOTP - I embossed with Cuttlebug swiss dots (still one of my favourites) and distressed with one of my BG files.

I'm linking these too for this week's challenge on Stamp Something - something with cold, winter wind.
