Dream Valley Challenge 28 -Easter

This week we have an Easter challenge at Dream Valley.  You can enter any Easter project you like, it doesn't have to be a card.  We have two fab sponsors this time.  First up we have Meljen's Designs who are offering one lucky winner 4 digis of their choice.  Secondly, Mulberry Crafts UK are offering another lucky winner a goody bag.

I decided to make an Easter card using a stamp by Indigoblu that was free with Craft Stamper.  I stampedit in Versafine Onxy Black onto green card and then cut it out and matted it using oval nesties.  The sentiment was stamped on the same card (from Hero Arts Special Messages set) and cut and matted using circle and scallop circle nesties.  My lovely backing paper is from a favourite pad - K&Co Tim Coffey Daisy.  Then I got out my flower punches and made the flowers to go round the oval.  I used EK Success Retro flower for the buttercups and added centres using Doodlebug crushed velvet flock in bumblebee.  For the daisies I used a Woodware Daisy punch, layering two flowers on top of each other and then Doodlebug crushed velvet card in bumblebee for the centre punched using an ordinary paper punch.  The leaves are punched with my broken McGill pin punch that is currently held together with an elastic band.  Finally I made a little flower for the sentiment using a Woodware Multi Sunflower punch.
