An Eggy Bouquet

Happy Friday peeps! So glad it's the weekend, and we are in for another winter storm, already about 6" of snow on the ground, lots of drifting.   I'm so ready for some nice warmer weather., when will it ever get here?? This weeks challenge was anything related to Easter.

This was my second attempt at this weeks challenge.  My first image that I coloured just didn't turn out the way I had envisioned so to the garbage it went!
So, then I pulled out another image which to me screamed Spring! Yep, it's a cutsey stamp called Eggy Bouquet.

I stamped the bouquet on bella's bestest paper and coloured with prismacolour pencils and gamsol. Cut it out with the large rectangle s/binder dies as well as the scallop piece.  I also punch a little picket fence using a MS fence border punch and distressed the edges of the fence with antique linen, then popped it up over the base of the bouquet.  I added some green flower soft to represent grass.
The DP is Basic Grey Kioshi.

To see what the other Babes have been up to this week, hop over to Bloggabella and take a look.  Next weeks challenge is an awesome sketch by none other than Danabella herself. Play along and submit your card via email to Emily by thursday night for a chance to win some bella bucks. Here is next weeks sketch:

Have a great weekend everyone!
