Wishing you a special Easter...


Good morning!

There are still a few days left to play along in the Spring Challenge at Hello Bluebird. All you need to do for a shot at winning a $50 gift certificate to the Hello Bluebird store is create a new card or project using HB products that is inspired by the pretty mood board above and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #hellobluebirdspringchallenge by 11:59PM MST on March 31st. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on the HB Instagram account on April 1st.

For my inspiration card I inked up some of the cute critters in the Little Painters set and paired them with the birch trees in the Picked For You set. They are just getting ready to paint their Easter eggs in the pretty pastel hues of the mood board while the bunny and trees have that malted milk chocolate color from the challenge. I did have to throw in some soft green for all the grass in this scene but I tried to keep it as soft and muted as the rest of the colors. I die cut a simple white frame, using the Gallery Frame #1 die and it really makes those eggs pop, LOL! The Easter Banner Sayings sentiment was also heat embossed in white to match but my sky is so light that it gets a little lost. Oh well, I just chalk it up to being a handmade card.  ;)

Later gators!
