Sweet Easter Wishes

My dear friend Dar from Dar's Crafty Creations
asked me if I wanted to join in a few challenges with her for fun,
that I pick one and she picks one 
and of course I said yes.

So I chose
The Paper Players

My card uses the down row... ribbon~die cut~pink
the diagonal row... patterned paper~spring~pink 

A year (or two) ago I had seen this cute~cute egg die by Poppystamps
and 'just had to have it' all know how that is, right?
So I purchased it and of course it has been waiting for it's debut...NBUS
(that's how bad I needed it).

It is an outline die so I cut it twice and paper pieced it..
What really drew me to the die was the big ribbon/bow.
I just think it is so pretty!!
I added a bunny from Frantic Stamper Easter Icons,
also NBUS.
I wonder what that bunny is thinking with
that big egg overpowering him lol!

I sponged Dew Drop New Sprout under the egg.
The sentiment is from an old Flourishes Easter Baskets set.
The paper for the egg is Penny Black.

Make sure to stop back on Saturday when we will have Dar's choice!!

Also entering the following challenges:
NBUS .... never before used schtuff
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper

Don't think we'll be delivering eggs this year... Super cute card though and that can be sent right? DH got his letter from NHS yesterday instructing him what he needs to do to keep safe... of course it said DON"T go out... What did he do?? Yep, he's hard work... Stay well sweetie

OMG this is just ADORABLE! I can see why you just HAD TO HAVE this die ... it's fabulous! GREAT job my friend ... LOVE all the pink! This was fun ... I'm sure we'll find time to do a few more over the next month. Hugs ... stay healthy!

I do love that die, Diane and I love what you did with it! That little bunny is just precious, too!

Adorable. The bright pink is eye-catching. Way to reduce your NBUS list!

Fabulous card and super NBUS dies. If I was that little bunny I'd be looking at the egg wondering if I could take a bite without anyone noticing! xx

Super cute card and wonderful dies. I love the color choices too.

Leslie Miller said...

Awwww, cute card and that egg is so pretty! I hear you about how you just had to have it. Sounds just like me. Got a basket full of stamps and another basket full of dies I haven't used yet. Saw your card over on Darnell's NBUS challenge blog. That's going to be fun!

Maura said...

HI, I am coming from the NBUS challenge. Love the soft colors and that gorgeous egg!!

Darnell said...

You girls come up with fun ideas, Diane! This is a perfect pink Easter card! Love the way you have blended highlights in the background and I can see why you wanted these goodies! I think the little bunny is thinking, "WHOA, I'd hate to see the size of that chicken!" Keep safe and take care! And thank you so much for sharing at NBUS!! Hugs, Darnell
