Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you all!

I hope you are all enjoying this long bank holiday weekend, such beautiful weather, which is soooo unusual for Bank Holiday's in the UK! Unfortunately I have been working since last wednesday (stuck indoors for most of it), but I am going to the Lake District next weekend for the Royal Wedding and May Day Bank Holiday so I am realy looking forward to that!

Today I have an easter card to share with you that I gave to my husband.


An arty farty angle to show how I've cut the front of the card away and slightly decorated the inside...

and the decorated inside...


Materials

CS: SU Whisper White & Wild Wasabi

Paper: Designer Series Pumpkin Pie (Brights), Retired SU

Stamps: Elzbells (Retired)

Tools: SU Scallop Border & Square lattice embossing folder

Misc: SU Markers


I love the colours of this card, lovely and fresh, perfect for spring. My hubby really liked his card. I know it's not very masculine, but he likes colourful cards and he has a thing for cute, cartoony type images. These Elzybells are some of his favourite desgins, it's just such a shame they are no more!! I also managed to incorporate my favourite technique on this card, paper peicing. I think it just finishes the egg off perfectly!

I don't know about you guy's, but I am in love with new embossing folders from the SU mini catalogue, especially this square lattice folder. They create some lovely textured effects and mke the perfect background to your proects.

I'm entering this card into the challenge over at Papertake Weekly (Spots & Stripes), as I've not done a challenge for a while!

Well I'd best dash, I've got to get ready for work!!

Enjoy the last day of your bank holiday, whatever you're doing!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
