Easter Baskets and a Spring Card

Hi Everyone. Here is the start of my 3d and non-card items with a few cards thrown in as well. Today it is the Colour Create challenge and the beautiful colours this week inspired me to make some Easter baskets and a Spring card.

The colours for the challenge are "Your Choice of Pastels" and the optional extra is "Easter or Spring". That's a nice easy one for everyone to join in with.

Of course I'm going to enter these items into some challenges:

Sophisticat Challenge - Mint Green, Lilac and 1 other colour (Pastel Yellow for me) with flowers

Sketch Saturday - The wonderful sketch I followed

Stamp with fun - Easter (the easter baskets)

Incy Wincy - Easter or Spring

Items used:

For the card:

ching-chou kuik's The Serene Night image

Bearly mine papers

Distress inks: Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Antique Linen, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Dusky Concorde, Skattered Straw.

Gold Ink,

Ribbons and flowers from my stash.

For the baskets:

Pastel coloured card.

Stickles, flowers, lace, buttons, brads and ribbon from my stash

Distress inks: Dusky Concorde, Peeled Paint, Faded Jeans, Worn Lipstick.

The Colour Create Challenge is sponsored by our very own Di of Di's Digi Downloads and she'll be giving the winner 5 images.

Please take a look at the amazing 3d projects and cards made by the rest of the awesome design team. They are a talented bunch!

Thanks for looking,
