Paper Temptress Easter Card

So I picked out my favorite bright spring colors and a wonderful easter theme image to make a lovely card using beautiful papers from Paper Temptress. The base of this card is Orange Fizz. It's just a great bright and playful color! I colored the shirt of the girl and the color of the bunny she is holding to go with the papers.
The image is printed on Heavenly white, the background is diecut from heavy duty wonderfully thick based Lemondrop 100 pound cardstock. I die cut them with Lifestyles (formerly Quickkutz dies); I added some great punched borders using from loose paper leftovers (that's why we always save those cutoffs) in Neenah, punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.


The image on this card is called Polly and Butterscotch from artist Cheryl Alger of Squigglefly. The challenge this week on Squigglefly is "Anything Goes" so this card qualifies and I am going to sign it up. Hop on over the the Squigglefly Challenge Blog and enter your own card. If you don't have a Squigglefly image, grab a freebie from the Squigglefly Website to play along. The freebie does count and you can win a prize for using it!!


Project Materials: Cardstock (Paper Temptress); Image (Squigglefly); Punch (Martha Stewart); Die Cuts (Lifestyles); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue All); Color (Copic Markers); Ink (Colorbox Chalk); Buttons (Grandma's Button Bag);
