Easter Friends

This is my second DT card for The Crafty Pad Challenge and this week the theme is Egg-tastic, you must have eggs, chickens, ducks or anything that makes, creates or comes from an egg on your project.  We are sponsored this week by:

Prize -  3 digi images of winners choice from their shop

I have used the pre-coloured version of the fun Crafty Pad image - Roshell Friends with Basket - don't they look happy waddling along together.  The image comes with its own sentiment but I used one of the Crafty Pad ticket sentiments.

I raided my sons art box for the orange feathers, he said it was OK because 'boy's don't do feathers', full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card, I like to do this because I think it really finishes the card nicely, it can be a bit disappointing to open a card to find a plain white inside.


Image:  The Crafty Pad - Roshell Friends with Basket
Papers:  Wild Rose Studio - Floral Paper Pack, Docrafts Papermania Lemon Sorbet Capsule Collection
Card Stock:  Core'dinations
Tools:  Punch Bunch - flower punches and leaf punch, Spellbinders - Scalloped Circle
Embellishments:  Ribbon, doily and brads from stash, feathers from my son's art box
Sentiment:  The Crafty Pad
