Shaped Easter card

In a mad moment a couple of weeks ago I ordered 50 shaped cards like this one (half in white, half in cream). I thought I would be able to use them with the largest of my nestie labels of the same shape and I think it's worked quite well.

I randomly stamped the white card with a PM swirl stamp with Stazon cactus green. The image is a Robyn's Fetish one called 'cross and flowers' which was one of the images I chose for winning Creative card crew 'for a loved one' challenge. The image was coloured with copics.

I very lightly distressed the card with mustard seed DI and more heavily on the nestie shape.

This is for:

One stitch at a time 50: anything but a square
Pixie dust studio2: don't be square
Mixed media Monday: shape up
Alota 53: using nestabilities
Digital Tuesday 98: use a die cut (plus a digi)

Simply Easter

This is a very simple Easter card (I need to make lots before 18 March, so I need to make some that don't take too long) made with a piece of PM Honey & hugs paper (I bought this paper pad quite a while ago and had forgotten I'd got it) - I chose this because it has rainbows on it, so I'm submitting it for Flutter by Wednesday 142: use a rainbow - and, of course, I've added some gold foiled butterflies.

Penny's 47 gives a photo inspiration which includes a rainbow, so this was another starting point for this card:

The sheep image is from the Kanban Easter kit.

This is also for:

4 crafty chicks 25: butterfly
Just for fun week 2: on the wings of a bug
Paper issues: birds and bees (and butterflies) - there are chicks and butterflies
Crafts and me: time to spread your wings
Delightful: animals
Gingerloft 12: our furry friends
Charisma cardz 7: spring has sprung
Creative card world: use a square card

Pink Easter joy

This is for the sketch for Critter 52, which also asked for the colour pink:

Papers are Forever Friends spring time double-ided and the scalloped edging (it's gold foiled although it looks more like black here), the egg and sentiment are from a Kanban Easter kit.
