.... at last I've made a challenge card!!! Well, as I said in the title - it's really a three challenges in one card - card!! The colours are from Colour Q - totally my colours, the layout is from Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and the theme is from Simplicity for this week's OLW card - to feature an egg(s).
I love this week's layout from Waltzingmouse - but I've been having a hard time coming up with an idea for my card. Well, that was until I saw Susan's challenge at Simplicity - a one layer card featuring an egg or eggs. Then when I saw the wonderful colours at Colour Q - it was easy - a basket of eggs for Easter!
I love the Colour Q challenge and I've got my new ink spots in all the current Stampin' Up! colours - but sadly the challenge is using a lot of the old SU colours!! Never mind, I've matched the colours I don't have as best I can. I stamped the basket full of eggs and the pennant images first, masked them and then over stamped with the quilt image. Then I coloured the pennant and eggs with my inks and aqua pen. I added a very clean and simple greeting and to finish I sprayed a light covering of Cosmic Shimmer mist in pearl. In real-life the card has a lovely shimmer.

It's feels so good to have completed some card challenges! After the last few weeks - which have been rather stressful, it feels good to start getting back to normal - or what passes for "normal" in my house!! I've even done all my ironing!! And it feels like Spring has really arrived - it's been absolutely beautiful here today - the sky was bright blue, white fluffy clouds and unseasonably warm!! It's been fab! Do drop by again tomorrow - I will have another card to share with you - I've still got a few Easter cards to make!!
Before I go - I'm delighted to report that Ben did his fun run last weekend in just over 11 minutes - much faster than he was expecting - so pleased for him. And I'd also like to welcome another new follower - Ciara. See you tomorrow.
