~TCM Birthday Bash Color Challenge~

Sunday, March 25, 2012

Hello, everyone! We're snuggled up in our cabin in Gatlinburg, TN for the night (Spring Break) and I thought I would post one of the cards I created back home before we left. This one is for a pretty color challenge from The Craft's Meow's Birthday Bash...

Now the element of the eggs isn't necessarily part of the challenge, but they looked awfully sweet in that inspiration photo, so I wanted to include them in my design. I used my Papertrey egg dies, stamped them with the solid flower image from "Happines Is", and glittered one of them up...

I created a nest-y little backdrop/border for them with leaves from the same set and added a pretty little glittered butterfly from the "Friend of Mine" set...

The sentiment, "Happy Spring" is from the "Fly Free" set. The paper is a pretty new favorite from My Mind's Eye. Awfully simple card, I know...but I've been enjoying those a little more lately. I have two more cards to post for TCM Birthday Bash challenges while we're here on vacation, so stay tuned. The challenges are open until the 31st if you're interested in playing along. They've even offered free digital images in case you don't already own any from TCM so that everyone can join in the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping in!
