A Spoon Full of Sugar - EASTER! and The BLOG CANDY WINNER!

A Spoon Full of Sugar this week is getting us ready for Easter... wow... Easter is coming quick isn't it???

Well for my card I knew the second I found out what the challenge was which image I wanted to use. That doesn't happen very often... I sit and go through images and work around and decide... but this one. Nope, got up from the computer and went straight to EASTER CHICK!
Love this image from Stampavie and artist Penny Johnson. Just the perfect cute Easter image! I colored my image with Copics. I then cut it out with an Oval Nestie... then I cut the bottom off. Why..I don't really know, LOL maybe to make it look more like an egg?
Then my card - I pulled out papers from Reminisce, their Easter collection from last year I think. And then I matched them with a cream colored card stock for the base, then a blue and yellow card stock. The two colors just so I could punch the Martha Stewart Chick Border punch and layer them to show off those chicks in the yellow they were meant to be. I sewed everything down with a zig zag stitch for some added fun. Then to the flowers.
Love these flowers!! These are some of the new spring flowers I got in the floral section at Hobby Lobby. These are paper and foam. Love the colors, and the look of them. I tried to match my colored flowers on the image to these.. LOL tried.

And I just had to show a close up of those chicks... love this punch :0) And then for some extra - I added two rows of pearls across the striped paper band.

Hope you enjoyed my Easter card - but do make sure to visit A Spoon Full of Sugar and see all the DT's fun Easter projects!
