Rainbow of Colours
is the theme for the new challenge at "The Shabby Tea Room" along with this gorgeous photo for inspiration.
The first thing I did was fill a tiny bag with sequins the same colour as the tulips........then I designed my Easter themed card around it :)
Funny thing -  I was eating Blue Berries....the juice on my fingers was a pretty colour, I added a little water,  grabbed some seam binding ribbon , then scrunched. Don't you just Love how it turned out :)
"Paper Tempress" is our sponsor for this challenge.....I have used 'White Diamond' for the card base - and 'Pink Splash Vellum' embossed with Swiss dots. How adorable is the Easter image! You can find it HERE......Lori makes the sweetest cards with vintage images. This one is a free download.

Hope You have enjoyed a Happy Easter

My second card today is my DT creation for "Stuck on U Sketches"
The theme.....Clear Skies
examples - Bugs, Birds, Clouds, Moon, Sun, Planes, Rocket
Here is what I came up with.........a super simple card using "Artfully Sent" Cricut cartridge.
 Just some blue glitter card behind and some gold ink splatters,
Ta da.......all done!  If you need a card in a hurry, this cartridge is for you!
So nice of you to visit
