Happy Easter!

A new challenge starts today at One Stitch at a Time and the theme, appropriately enough, is Spring!

I've actually made two cards this for OSAAT this week.... one using an image by Kassal Digi Stamps and one using one of my own new Alipeeps' Art digi stamps, now available from Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet! :) This is the first time my creations have been included in the OSAAT challenge and the very lovely Choccy wanted to let me be the first to create a DT project with them. :)
For my Kassal Digi Stamps project I chose this cute bunny to work with and decided to make an Easter card:
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and used freebie Easter-themed papers from a craft magazine for my card. I love the fresh, spring colours of these papers.
I added detail with a die-cut frame and pennants and some punched borders and some ribbon and added my sentiment using rub-on alphas:
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Bring on Spring
Creative Corner - Anything Goes
Digi Haven - Spring
Dilly Beans - Easter
Jellypark Challenges - Pretty Pastels
Patties Creations - Easter
QKR Stampede - Animal Antics
Simply Create Too - Animals
Stampin With The Dragon - Easter
Stempelsonne - Fur and Tail
Sweet n Sassy - Think Spring
4 Crafty Chicks - Easter
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes With Ribbon
Delightful Challenges - Hippity Hoppity

For my Alipeep's Art project I worked with my Starry Dreamer digi image:

I went with a similar colour scheme to my first card and coloured my image with Promarkers again:

I used lots of pretty die-cutting on this card, using a new Sizzix border die I got recently and some decorative oval Nesties and my perennial favourite butterflies embosslit die from Stampin' Up!

I also added some pretty flowers...

And some Stickles glitter on the stars:

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - Bingo (Die Cut, Free and Glitter)
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards - Bring on Spring
Creative Corner - Anything Goes
Digi Haven - Spring
Jellypark Challenges - Pretty Pastels
Sweet n Sassy - Think Spring

It's so easy to enter the challenge at OSAAT.
