It's a little early but..... Happy Easter !

Well, actually it's not early it's a bit late actually - my card that is!

The card I'm sharing with you today is my DT project for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which started yesterday.  This week our theme is 'Easter' and our prize sponsor is Whiff of Joy Stamps.

I needed to get an Easter card made quickly to send to my Grandsons, my favourite method of card making is colouring images, however, I am currently having some dexterity issues and so am looking for other ways to create my cards.  I received an email from offering me free Easter downloads, so I thought I'd use some of these for my card.  Not my usual type of card design, does it work though ? What do you think ? 

To me it feels a bit like 'cheating' to use printed designs on a card rather than stamping and colouring images myself, so I like to add and alter things around and make it more my usual style. 

I cut out and attached various elements from the free downloads and added a few embellishments.  On the 'egg bunny' I added buttons for his eyes and nose and, as I do like a bit of bling, added Platinum Stickles around the edges of the layers.  The sentiment was attached using foam pads to lift it away from the background a little.

I am quite pleased with the finished card and at least it's ready to post in time to arrive with my Grandsons before Good Friday.

Do pop over to the CCT Challenge Blog to check out the amazing creations from the rest of the Design Team, it's well worth it I can tell you !

Thanks for dropping by here today, I hope you've enjoyed your visit.
