Vintage Egg #1

Thank goodness it's Friday! We woke up to some winter weather this morning - SNOW! But it didn't last. It's been a very gloomy week with lots of rain this week, but the sun finally came out this afternoon.  This weekend is going to be fabulous with temps ranging from 50's to the 70's by Monday.  Hopefully we have seen the last of winter weather.

With Easter next weekend, I've been busy making a few Easter cards.  For my card today, I'm using Power Poppy's digital image Vintage Easter Egg. 

After resizing to what I wanted, I printed it off and coloured using prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.  I used a square die to cut it out, then layered it onto a piece of coral card stock which was cut using spellbinders captivating square die.

Paper is from MME Howdy Doody.  I added some lace and blue silk ribbon, pearls and a prima flower to finish off.  I also added some nuvo jewel drops  orange marmalade for the centers of the yellow flowers, and wink of stella clear pen on the blue flower.

I will see you soon as  I have 2 more Easter cards to share over the next week.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh Pauline. What a beautiful Easter card. The master at colouring has done it again. I love how all the pieces are coordinated- beautiful DP, blue silk ribbon and flower,

Sorry, here is the rest (lol). Your coral card stock die with the beautiful lace adds extra elegance. You never disappoint Pauline.

Yay, I'm so excited to see this beautiful card and to know there's more coming! Love how you brought the blue in with the peachy coral. It's always been a favorite color combo for me. Is there anything blue doesn't look good with? That was one of my fave paper packs, too, of which I may have only one or two sheets left. Beautiful design and stellar coloring. I love when you color! Enjoy your better weather coming up. It's sunny here today after a rain and wind storm, so I'll be heading outside. Have a good day!
