Basic Grey DT

We have a wonderful sketch by the fabulous Martine this week at Basic Grey this week and a brilliant prize for this challenge which has been very generously donated by our one and only sponsor Simon Says Stamp, is a fab $25 spending spree to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore :),Just think of the goodies you could get with that, you lucky ducks :)

 I was about to say I chose to do an easel card - I didn't - I just made the whole card upside down, had to cut the front off and decided the easiest way to deal with this was to turn it into an easel card.  Haven't done this (made the whole card upside down or back to front) for ages, hope it isn't a phase I'm going into lol.



I used one of Eline's digi Easter babies, available at Squiggly Fly, and colour it with distress inks. The papers are Lily Kate, one of my all time favourites, the image frame is cut with a Nellie Snellon die, and the borders with an MS deep cut punch. I cut out the two little rabbits that come with the image and used them to 'hold' the sentiments which is by Personal Impressions.  The flowers, lace, pearls and ribbond are from my stash and the two leaves cut and embossed by hand then I inked the edges.

I've just arrived home from the UK, so I suppose I should empty my cases and do some washing - ugghhh!! Still if I do this today I will get tomorrow to play with the goodies I bought last week at the NEC.
Hope you're all having a wonderful Easter break.
