Elzybells Challenge & ABC Challenge

I needed to make another Easter card so I wanted to use this cute Elzybells image and luckily it fitted in with 2 challenges: Elzybells' Challenge is to use polka dots and ABC Challenge is to use flowers.

So I coloured the Elzybells image with watercolour pencils and added highlights of Crystal Stickles to the flowers. To fit in the polka dots challenge, I ran a piece of white card through my Big Shot with a dots embossing folder and then restamped the sheep and cut their fluffy bits out and stuck onto the original image. Don't they look cute and fluffy?! I then cut the image out using rectangle scalloped nesties and added some dots (more dots!) around the border. I then layered with 2 colours of green card. The background papers are again from that Papermania set I bought the other week. The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat cut out with oval nesties and double mounted on oval nesties with a dotted border. The ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (Elzybells); Watercolour pencils; Assorted cardstock; Paper (Papermania); Nesties; Black fine liner; Ribbon (Poppicrafts); Sentiment (Pink Petticoat); Crystal Stickles

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunny weather!
