Easter Card

This evening I spent a few hours in my craft room "playing" with some of my new supplies. This card is the result! I included certain things to be able to enter it in more than one challenge, like most of you do! I paper-pieced the Easter egg, replacing the note card Maxwell is supposed to be holding.


Here is the list of ingredients with the ones from http://www.stampingscrapping.com/ marked with a *:

House Mouse Stamp* - Maxwell's Note (in this case its Maxwell's Egg)
JustRite circle stamps* - Favorite Occasions Set
WoodwareUSA stamps* - Leafy Swirls
(all of the stamped images are colored in with colored pencils)
Spellbinders dies* - Labels 4, Scalloped Edge Frame, Standard Circles Lg.
Cardstock - K&Co.* "Citronella", Cosmo Cricket* "Jolly by Golly", My Minds Eye (lg. print)
Ribbon, rhinestones & some paper from my stash

The challenges I'm posting this card in:



Yikes! I just realized I haven't done the Rain/Water challenge @ StampingScrapping yet! Maybe tomorrow night!
