Chicklets


Yeah, the weekend is here and it's time again for Our Creative Corner's weekly challenge. This time our hostess, Silke Ledlow, has challenged us to make an Easter card. Here's mine and as usual, I had a terrible time editing the purples in this photo so they are true to life (purples always challenge my photography and photo editing skills). Now that I set the white balance with my camera before shooting, I am getting better purples, but still not perfect.

For my sample this week, I chose this charming vintage print from the Magic Moonlight blog (free vintage digital images) and printed it out on my home printer. I used a Sellbinders die to cut the frame from Barely Banana CS and sponged it with Lavendar Lace. The gingham and two purple CSs are old Creative Memories scrapbooking paper that I had from back in the day. The edges of the gingham were also cut with a Spellbinders border die. The big silver flower? Well, I ordered some bead caps from Ebay a few weeks ago and from the auction picture, I didn't realize this one was SO BIG. It was quite a shock when I opened the package, but thought I would probably work it into a card someday - didn't know it would be quite so soon!

Please do stop by Our Creative Corner and play with us this week. It should be an easy challenge and one that you can enter your work from other challenges into as many are asking for Easter cards this week. Hope you have a blast crafting this weekend!

Hugs & blessings,
