Bloggers Challenge Sketch Challenge

This is the challenge for this month.  I haven't used this layout before.  I had fun making my card though, and it seemed like it took forever to figure out which direction the card should go, and how I was going to coordinate all the components I wanted to use.  Here is the link back to Lisa's blog page where the challenge is posted.

And here is what I came up with, using upcoming Easter as my subject.

I used a medallion stamp of an Easter egg as the main image.  The white background was dry embossed with a Sizzix folder bird on a branch.  I used green glitter glue on the green, and pink glitter around the egg.  The little eggs on wire came from Joann's, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  The white punched strip is just a scrap I found laying around from one of my border punches.  The "scraps" from border punches really come in handy sometimes, and some are just as pretty as the border itself.

I wish everyone a very Happy Easter!  Hugs!
