Happy Easter!

Hope you are all enjoying the Easter sunshine even if it is still a bit chilly. Have had a very quiet and peaceful day here, with both Hubbie & daughter poorly & very sleepy. So have taken full advantage and made a card for a few challenges in between distributing drinks, tissues & sympathy.

Challenges: I have followed their fab sketch, I really do love this one! I did hesitate over this weeks challenge from the Pollycraft team as its a recipe one ......gulp! You need to use the following:
4 x papers, 3 x embellishments, 2 x ribbon/lace and 1 x image.
The 4 x papers did scare me until I remembered a card I made at a class in the Glitter Pot ages ago. Instead of colouring the image you stamp it onto different papers, in this case 4 different papers, and decoupage the layers. It does take time and is a bit fiddly but I love the results. My card has up to 8 layers. So that took care of that part, then I have embellishments ~ flowers, dew drops & a gem stone for the dot over the letter i and the 2 ribbons are layered together at the top and of course there is 1 image.........job done! have a colour combo this week of YELLOW & GREEN perfect Spring colours!
Hmmmmmmm I can smell my gammon cooking, must be nearly done now, must go and see.
