Easter Chic


 
Good Morning fellow crafters and bloggers, Alison here today sharing a card made for this weeks challenge theme of 'Easter'.  :)  As always the lucky winner will receive $20 to spend on the Cheery Lynn Website, so well worth joining in!
 
Now, I have been wanting to use my Lace Egg die for ages, so really enjoyed making this sweet card in layers of chocolate and cream cardstock.  I stitched MME papers onto rich brown bazzil card and sanded and distressed around the edges.  I used the gorgeous Polynesian Sails die to mat and frame my image, and cut 3 easter eggs from contrasting card and paper and decorated with pearls.  I added 2 delicate butterflies from the Tiny Things with Wings set, and finished off with 'Happy Easter' from the brilliant mix and match range of sentiment dies.
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
I hope you find time to play along with our challenge this week, the DT love popping along to your blogs to see all the creative ways you can use Cheery Lynn Dies, and there is always daily inspiration over on our Cheery Lynn Inspiration Blog too.
 
Have a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today.

Just beautiful Alison. I like the browns and beige with the touches of blues and purples in your image. I love the way you layered your eggs and added the beads to them. The look so delicate.

Your card is beautiful, Alison! I love the chocolatey colors. Makes me dream of sweet white and milk chocolates. Such a dreamy image too! Is that a baby dragon in that egg? That is so like you. Love it!

Hi Laura :)

I visited your blog but was unable to leave a comment.
