Challenge: Easter/Spring is here!

Hello and welcome to another challenge! I know it's come around very quickly but Easter is nearly upon us, so it seemed fitting for us to set an Easter theme challenge!

If you don't own any Easter stamps do feel free to make a 'Spring' themed card instead!

I decided to use a zingy colour combo for mine - maybe not a traditional Easter colour combination but I love it!


Stamps - Take Three Spring
Ink - Summer Sunrise
Card - Stamper's Select White/Summer Sunrise/Raspberry Fizz
Paper - Pretty Pastels
Other - Summer Sunrise & Raspberry Fizz buttons/corner rounder punch

Here's Aimes:
"Well I don't actually own any Easter stamps *gasp* we tend to focus on the scoffing of Easter treats rather than exchanging cards LOL! With this in mind, I decided to make a little treat box to fill with mini-eggs to celebrate spring/Easter. I was planning on using some yummy mini eggs as props for my photo but they've gone missing....;D"

Box Recipe

Stamps: Daily Designs/Daily Design Sentiments/Polka Dot Basics II
Ink: Versamark/Dark Chocolate/Summer Sunrise
Cardstock: Spring Moss/Melon Berry/Vintage Cream
Accessories: Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Lemon Tart Grosgrain Ribbon/Melon Berry Vintage Button/White Button Twine/Scalloped Edged Scissors
