Hi peeps - not long to wait now until you can rip the shiny paper off all those Easter Eggs - yum!!  If you haven't taken part yet in the Easter Egg Hunt over at OSAAT, pop over now for details - there's still time!  I found all the eggs (eventually!), and have included 5 of the necessary elements into my Easter card. 
There are also lots of fabulous digi images available to buy at OSAAT, including this beautiful Easter Basket image from the lovely Claire at Hope Jacare
The colours I've used are not my usual choice, particularly the lime green and pale grey, but it's fun to try something different for a change.
The image is coloured with Copics, the large bow has been printed twice and decoupaged and the spotty lime green paper is from My Minds Eye. "Easter" lettering was die-cut on my Cuttlebug.
Lots of Glamour Dust here and there (oh not again I hear you cry!), and four pearl beads added to the punched border (Fiskars punch). The grey card is Core'dinations, edged in lime green ink and layered onto white cardstock.
Thank you for looking, and here's wishing you all a Happy Easter.
Hugs, Sylvia xxx

Totally stunning and awesome colouring! I love it!

Gini said...

A very elegant and beautiful card Sylvia, there is no way we can rip the shiny paper off these beauties!
Maybe just a lick of the glamour dust?
What do you think?
We could be shiny on the inside as well as the outside just in time for Good shiny Friday!
Happy Easter
