A very un-easter easter card

A very un-easter easter card

I made this card for the Simply Betty February challenge using her lovely free image, we had to choose between a boy and a girl without seeing them first, I let my boyfriend choose and of course he choose the boy (definitely not my usual style). The one condition of the challenge was that no pastel colours were allowed, as soon as I read this I decided to give sepia a go. I had found a promarker tutorial in an old issue of a card making magazine just a few days before, it didn't turn out as I intended, but for a first attempt I'm very happy. After seeing all the amazing entries for the challenge I knew I wouldn't have a hope in winning so just had fun playing.

For the card I coloured the image with promarkers, the patterned paper is cosmo cricket and the ribbon is citrus strip from Anitas. I had fun experimenting with my new sillhoutte cameo which I used to make the eggs, tags and title, all finished off with a card candi and diamond glaze for some depth.

I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges:-


Miss Maggie

For those of you who like to hear about Miss Maggie, here she is not helping me wash the car. So many people came to say hello to her I think it took me twice as long to get the car clean, its so nice to see the sun starting to make an appearance and the neighbours certainly got quite the welcome home (pet me, fuss me please)

If you thought the last bone was big this is even bigger (he spoils her but at least its lasting more than a few hours)

And my very very favourite photo, shes so elegant and lovely (I know I'm biases)

Thanks for popping by and I really do appreciate your feedback and comments xox
