More Easter card inspiration

Hi again!
Here’s another of my Easter cards – I’m entering this one into a couple of challenges too ;)  :-

Creative Belli challenge #166 – Easter with older, forgotten embellishments (CBC166), and…
Papercraft Star #138 – Easter, and…
Happy Campers challenge #13 – Add Dimension

Here’s my card – definitely with plenty of dimension!! Lots of layers in this découpaged design!!!

The patterned paper was a scrap left over from another card (very pretty and with glittery accents, so I think it was maybe from one of my First Edition 6×6 pads), and I used the lovely springtimey garden themed découpage image for the focal panel.
It’s a new design collection from Papermania, called ‘Home to Nest’ and there are some sweet birdie designs and gardening ideas in the pack – I’m not sure if it’s available in the shops just yet, but I have had a sneak peak as I was commissioned to do a set of cards using the pack for a magazine (Quick Cards Made Easy, issue 114).
The mag isn’t out yet for a few weeks, so I can’t share the cards I’ve made for it, but this was a leftover découpage piece after I’d finished my commission – too lovely not to use!!!

Look at that fabby dimension and layering…

I’d forgotten how pretty these brads are (My Mind’s Eye, ‘Follow Your Heart’, I think??)
Then a greeting with a scalloped shape from can’t-remember-where, layered up with a circle-cut Nestie and sticker ABC (new Basic Grey).

Fun! Thanks for stopping by, Rx
