Happy Easter...


It's April 1st, which means it is April Fools Day but one thing that isn't a joke is that monthly challenges are starting back up at Hello Bluebird! There is a beautiful mood board up on the Hello Bluebird blog for this first color challenge to help get you inspired to join the fun. Every month there will be one winner selected to receive a $50 gift certificate to the HB shop... how awesome is that?! Just check out HB's various social media accounts for all the details. 

I kept my inspiration card pretty clean and simple for this one, using my Copic airbrush system to apply a soft wash of pastel hues to the background of this mini slimline card. I used the Charlie Large Outline Alpha dies to make the sentiment look like frosted cookies decorated for the Easter holiday and used the same pastel colors on the little scene above where I paired elements from the Meadow Bunnies, Spring Gatherings and Little Painters stamp sets. I think the whole thing looks like a piece of sweet Easter candy, LOL! Well, if you are a fan of Hello Bluebird I hope you find some time to play along in the new challenge and best of luck to those who do! 

Stay crafty my friends!
