Oliver's Easter Card.

Hi everyone. I was in a good mood....notice the past tense! I took a photo of this card and thought how nice it was to be able to take a photo at 5 to 7 and still in daylight! But, and there's always a but isn't there when I went to upload to my laptop instead of getting a message that there were 2 photos to upload the message said there were 148. Hopping mad doesn't even come close!!!

But enough about my stupid camera! Here's the card I made for Oliver for Easter. I know he is not quite 5 months old but I've made a card for Poppy so he has to have one too! For this year at least she's the only one who needs an Easter egg. I won this stamp the other week at the Creative Card Crew challenge. Thanks again to them and to Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

You might think that this photo doesn't look as if it was taken in daylight. This is because it was re-taken about 20 past 7! As I went to type out the challenges I am going to enter I realised that it was maybe not quite right for one of them so I made a little addition of Sakura glitter gel pen to the flowerpot and the bunny's bow!

This is just a quick fun card but I think it fits a few challenges.

Simon Says Stamp :- Easter plus glimmer - hence my little addition.
Colour Create :- Favourite pastels plus Easter.
Paperplay :- Easter.
Fussy and Fancy :- Easter.
Easy Craft Projects :-Easter.
High Hopes :- Gems or pearls.
Truly Scrumptious :- Sketch.
Stamp Something :-Doodle something. I doodled round the image.
Pile it on :- Animal-riffic.

What I used :-

Image :- High Hopes - Tulip Bunny.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Colouring :- Promarkers and Sakura clear glitter gel pen.
DP :- Papermania pastel stack.
Flat back pearls from Hobby House.
Spotty ribbon, button and string from stash.
I'm quite happy with this card for a little boy. What do you think? Is it ok? I wish the photo was a bit better. The DP behind the image is spotty and so is the ribbon but you can't really see that. On the plus side I think you can see where I've used the glitter gel pen!
Probably I should do my ironing now or maybe I'll prevaricate a little and see what the entries are like for Totally Gorjuss and Just Cute Bears. Well no contest is there?
