Easter Joys

I hope things are well with you today!  
I'm so glad you could stop in!
I have some exciting news to share with you today...this is my first post for my new DT position with the awesome Pile It On Challenge blog!  The goal of this fun filled blog is to link your project with as many different challenges as you can!  You've done the work...so you might as well link up and show it off as much as you can!  

Our challenge theme for this week is "Easter Joys". 
 I have to admit it was fun to finally sit down and work on a bright, spring colored project. 

Our wonderful sponsor this week is...

...who is offering one lucky winner 2 digis of their choice (sets or custom digis excluded).

I had so much fun working with the image that I was able to choose which is called "Easter Chicks".  You can find it here.  

Let's take a look at the card creation...


I've colored up the images with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I printed out two different sizes of the digi so I was able to fussy cut some smaller ones and pop them up among the other chicks for some dimension.  The last little chick, as you'll notice there are three, made it into the inside of the card.  

I rummaged around looking for my seasonal paper pack my kiddos had purchased me several years back, as I knew it had some Easter paper in it.  I chose 3 different papers to layer onto this creation.  The blue colored paper has been punched with my eyelet lace Stamp 'n Up punch.  I added a doily and some lace to the creation to give it a soft and feminine touch.  To finish it off I added some teal colored sugar dots on the top corner as well as the bottom corner.  

I decided that the card also needed to shimmer and glitter, so I added some stickles to the bows in the little chicks hair as well as some Glitter Ritz to the grass to shimmer like dew.  
I thought it turned out kinda cute!

Now I'm hoping that this bright and cheery card has encouraged you to pull out some bright colored papers and create a project that fits our theme of "Easter Joys".  And for more inspiration, be sure to visit the Pile It On Challenge blog to see what the other design team members have created.  Then, get linking up those great projects...remember the more the better!

Until next time...
