Happy Easter (Day 1 of Design Week Challenge)

Hello Everyone.

This week I am designing for the Penny Black blog and hosting a challenge.  I will have a new card Monday through Thursday incorporating the challenge theme of "Easter".  You can read all about the challenge here and on how to enter your creative masterpieces for a chance to win great prizes.

Today's card features Penny Black's new slapstick stamp "Easter March" and a fun transparent set called "Trims".  Just to warn you - you will be seeing me use the wave pattern quite a bit.  After one impression I was hooked.

I love to "fussy" cut so of course I couldn't resist trimming this cute hedgie and Easter cart after he was water colored.  The dots on the Easter egg are accented with white foam paint.

If you haven't seen the new cardstocks by Penny Black you can take a peek here in their latest spring catalog.  Aren't the colors great?!  The tritone color sets make mixing and matching a snap!

I will see you tomorrow with another Easter card.

Have a sunny day,
