A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 44 "Easter"

For our challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar this week we are asking you to get creating for Easter. I have made a simple card today using the largest scalloped square nestabilities. I think it turned out real sweet though. I cut the green dotty paper using this nestabilitie. I then folded a piece of white card stock in half and the cut with this die again but didn't go right to the top edge so you keep the join to get the main card shape. I then stuck the green dotty dp to the front of my card matching up the edges carefully.

The cute little characters are from the High Hopes Three pane Easter stamp. I stamped sweet bunny again to create my fourth pane. The gorgeous papers are from the DCWV Nana Nursery Baby Girl stack. To finish I added the little flower gem and pearl to Baa Baa.

We have a great prize this week of the below gift voucher which has very kindly been donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts. Thank you Bryony!


Our wonderful and talented Guest Designer this week is Becky. Please pop over to Becky's blog to say hello. Be sure to also check out the gorgeous creations on the challenge blog from the rest of the fabulous team!

Crissy Armstrong said...

Nikki! I hadn't seen this creation before! I have been too busy to visit blogland so I'm trying to catch up to everybody. This is tremendous! I tried to mentally follow your instructions about the nesties and I'm a bit instruction-challenged and don't get it. I think I could try to do it though if I mess around with it.
Your card is just amazing and I love it!
