MAWTT Challenge 141 - 'Easter Wishes'

Good Morning! Hope everyone is well - I can't believe it's Thursday again already and so time for another wonderful challenge over at.....

Moving Along With The Times

The lovely Lisa is our hostess this week and she has chosen the fab theme of

'Easter Wishes'

So we want to see a card or a gift or altered item etc. with an Easter Theme! I'm really looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations with this challenge! 

We are sponsored this week by the wonderful Digi My World

who kindly gave us some really cute images to play with!! They are from a set called Bunny Ears and this little girl is called Cindy Ears!! Isn't she adorable....

The papers are from Pink Petticoat. The gorgeous Memory Box Die - 'Modern Landscape Border' and the little resin flowers - 'Dolly Mixture Dreams' are from My Crafty Heart. My wonderful daughter bought me some little bunnies for Christmas - isn't he cute!! The Sentiment was made on computer and I've cut it out with scalloped scissors and outlined edges with Sakura blue glitter pen. 

I tried something a bit different with this image. I coloured it digitally with a pale base colour and then coloured over and shaded with Prisma Pencils. I definitely need more practice with the pencils!!! There were going to be two images on this card but I made a right mess of the the first and it went in the bin. But I think it was probably just as well because I wouldn't have been able to fit my bunny on and those gorgeous flowers!! and she kind of fits in well with the landscape background on her own. 

Hope you can hop on over to MAWTT for more details of the challenge and to check out the rest of the Team's wonderful creations - they are all gorgeous!! :-)
