It's a Party

 Welcome to this week's Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #182Join us in this week’s challenge using the colors in photo (White Daisy, Lagoon, Smoothie and Hollyhock.)  You have until Thursday, March 3, 2016 to create and link up your project. Great color combination for Easter cards...look forward to seeing your inspirations for this color challenge.  The Color Challenge was combined with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #148, and the theme from Heart 2 Heart Challenge "Party Animals.  

Please click on any of the highlighted challenges to see the many inspirations and creative designs from each of the Design Team members and the many submissions to these challenges.  Some of the these challenges may still be open so hop on by and join us for some fun challenges.  

The colors hollered "Easter" so I had just purchased a digi of a bunny holding balloons from Craftin Desert Divas and it fit the need for the colors and the theme "Party Animals" all I needed to do was apply it to the sketch.  

Cut the background pieces first, then printed, colored and fussy-cut the image.  Using Paper Fundamentals, design paper and cardstock several images were cut from Cricut Design Space to make up the border between the two backgrounds, and the two strips behind the focal point, and the grass. 

Used an egg-shape panel behind my image, raised with Foam and placed the bunny on top adding the grass. Adhered the strip of baskets and strip of presents with 3D foam tape. Added egg embellishments in upper right-hand corner and then stamped and fussy-cut the Sentiment and placed in the left-hand corner.  

Finished up with Liquid Glass on the eggs in the baskets and corner, bows and ribbons, bunny's nose and bow, and grass.  Added Wink of Stella "clear" to baskets, presents and bunny.  Click on picture to see a larger image.

Hi Sue! Oh what a delight it is to have you join us over at Outlawz Monday Greetings! Such a lovely card. I really like the colors of the pattern paper and all the different elements on the card. The bunny is very adorable. It truly can be use for birthday or Easter celebration. Even just a "hello" spring card as well. Beautifully done Sue. Hope you will have a lovely weekend ahead.

Hugs, Christina
