March is racing by and Easter is right around the corner.  This little girl (SweetStamps) in her Easter bonnet holding the adorable little bunny says it all. The image is colored using watercolor pencils. My card background and the E-A-S-T-E-R letters are kraft cardstock. The grass, egg diecuts, and ovals are all cut from Cheery Lynn Design dies.
I am entering this card in the following challenges: Cheery Lynn Designs -- Easter; Simon Says Monday Challenge -- B is for ...(bunny, bonnet); Kraft Journal -- take your pick (green, bunny, die cut, white, yellow); and SweetStamps -- anything goes.

Lucky Green

March has finally arrived. Although we are still covered with snow here in Chicago, the weatherman is promising warmer temperatures in a couple of days. I sure hope he's right.
My card today, created with the Mojo Monday sketch in mind, celebrates St. Patrick's day. My card base uses kraft cardstock. The white background is dry embossed using a Tim Holtz background texture fade. The green panel and shamrocks are cut from glittery cardstock. The sentiment is one of the Tim Holtz stamps and is framed with glossy gold. The card is finished with a pearl embellishment that I have hoarded for a long, long time.
I am entering this card in these challenges: Mojo Monday -- sketch challenge; Simon Says Monday challenge -- just a hint of clover; Kraft Journal --St. Patrick's Day; Great Impressions -- go green; Art With Heart Challenge -- go green.
