BasicGrey Challenge #29

Haven't we had some beautiful Spring weather this week just ties in nicely with this week's challenge on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog. The theme this week is Easter/Spring. We would like to see this theme in your creations this week.

I chose a gorgeous afternoon to make my card this week, sun streaming in through the window, the sound of people cutting their grass, birds singing in the trees, my tulips dancing in the breeze and my two beautiful girls playing out in the garden and having a whale of a time together.

The base card is white Bazzill, swiss dots, this is such gorgeous card and so I chose not to cover it up too much. I love the freshness and how clean it looks.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey Urban Prairie and Papermania Retro Floral. These have been matted onto some pale yellow and pale blue card from the Papermania card stack.

The image is Messy Rabbit which my fabulous friend Tara sent to me and I have coloured her with ProMarkers. Warm grey 2 for Messy, blossom and blender pen for her pink bits, lime and moss for the leaves, cornflower for the flowers, yellow for the centres of the flowers, terracotta for the pot.

The ribbons are from my stash.

The Easter egg brad in the centre of the ribbons is by Hot Off The Press.

The buttons are by BasicGrey.

I printed the sentiment from my PC.

The tulips are in my garden !

As always the rest of the DT's creations are out of this World and have to be seen.

Have a fantastic Saturday and see you back here tomorrow for Colour Create.
