Another sneak peak and a fun challenge...

Thank you ALL for your wonderful comments. I SO promise I will be here. I will be creating--trust me when I say I need to. And you will see lots of CHF stuff still too :) Even tho I have left the CHF team it does not mean I won't be sharing my take on the stamps. Honestly how could I resist those backgrounders and Kim Hughes stamps???

Today's card showcases several stamps from the newest Kim Hughes stamp set called Sweet Spring. I created an easter scene for Sunday Featured Stamper over at Splitcoaststampers.
I had a hard time choosing a favourite from Dawn's gallery but I choose to CASE this card:

Changes I made (from the orignal card):
-the ribbon (knotted it rather than tied it)
-the colours
-the images
-I added a pin
-I omitted the strip of paper below/underneath the ribbon.

Here is my take:



You'll also note that I used my Copic blender marker (the clear marker) to create patterns on my Easter eggs.

Your spring card is very cute. Oh how I wish it were spring.....oh wait I mean after Christmas I wish it would be spring :) Using the blender to make patterns on the eggs is a really neat idea. Thanks for sharing :)
