April 23, 2015 Happy Hello


Although some people see an Easter basket - I seee a spring basket full of fresh eggs,   I used a Great Impressions stamp - love their stamps and they always give such a nice crisp impression.  Colored it with prisma colored pencils and OMS and I kept trying to get my bow on the basket to come out just right my camera simply would not cooperate so IRL it does look better.  My bestie Donna gave me a couple of sheets of purple DP and it went perfectly with this image and cs.  Of course no card is complete without bling so a butterfly and flower were added.  Challenges:
     Sketch Saturday - follow sketch
     Great Impressions - Eggstra Special
     Stamp and Create - anything goes
