Anything Goes Challenge 63 - Get Ready for Easter

Hi to my lovely blogging friends...

Well it's the weeks have rolled by and it's time for another challenge over at Anything Goes!!  We had such a fabulous lot of entries for the Boyz to Men challenge... why don't you pop over to the challenge blog to see if you were a winner!! 

This time our theme is 'Get Ready for Easter'.... so I chose a lovely digi image that I had stashed on my computer from Saturated Canary - she's called Murray..  and I just love her to bits!

Now, I chose to use a central stepper card for this one, my first attempt at a stepper card... and I'm quite pleased how it turned out on the whole.  I coloured my image with Copics (available from The Craft Den), then matted and layered her with various pastel spring colours - which I also used on the steps.  I finished it off with a bit of ribbon and lace (again from my stash), a couple of Memory Box die cuts (Tessatina Border and Spring Border) to give it dimension, and a computer generated sentiment..... hope you like!

Just take a peek at the challenge blog to see what my lovely teamies have come up with to inspire you.....  and I look forward to seeing your entries!!

Thank you for the lovely comments you leave.... and happy crafting..
Big Hugs

Michelle said...

Hi Christine,

First of all what a gorgeous card, love the colours and gorgeous image, your colouring is anazing.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your lovely comments about my videos. I have the Apple folding cover for my iPad 2. It attaches to the side of the iPad and folds up to prop it up. You can have it in two different ways propped up fully do the iPad is almost straight likeni did for the video or so it's sloping which I use when actually using/typing on the iPad. I got mine from the Apple online store. Hope this helps. I'll be back soon to have a proper look around your blog!
