Easter Cards & Challenges

I wrapped up making my Easter cards and got them all in the mail hopefully on time! This card is for the Perfect Sentiments challenge 26 to make an Easter card with bling. It's also for the Tuesday Throwdown 92 to use pastels. I used a Penny Black image and sentiment, coloring with Copics, and adding some glossy accents to the ribbon on the egg, and some pearl pen accents to the tiny flowers for the bling. I used an EK chain punch to create the zig-zag panels in blue scraps for the background. The pink dsp is a soft blend of pink and cream, and I added a mat of soft green.

This card is for the Shopping our Stash challenge 46 to "punch it out, or use punches." This card is going to a special little girl who loves purple (like me) so I kept it simple using some PTI dsp in shades of lavender & purple. The stamp set is by G Studio and I used some SU! tag punches for the image.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by.
