C.R.A.F.T. – Challenge 506 – 21st of March – Spring/Easter

Click here to go to challenge blogThe Design Team at C.R.A.F.T. are thinking of Spring and Easter on the official first day of Spring. To celebrate the end of Winter we are looking for a Spring/Easter card. I used an adorable Easter basket called, LizzyLove IMG35 by Odd Ball Art Co.  I love digital stamps because you can make the image any size you want. I made two A2 cards to demonstrate this. I coloured the images with Copic markers. I used various papers from my stash and some dies – bunnies, sentiments, and frame to complete my design.
