Happy Easter

This is my final Easter card using a lovely Lili of the Valley pre-coloured topper which was one of the die cut sheets I chose as my prize from the Lili of the Valley Spring Challenge.  I had over 40 sheets of toppers from their online store, so you'll be seeing lots more LOTV cards on my blog!

I used dark blue card for my layers to make it suitable for a man and perfect for The Male Room 'Easter' challenge.  I'm also entering the Cuttlebug Mania 'Happy Easter', Allsorts 'Easter' and A Gem of a Challenge 'Easter' challenges.  The card, paper and peel offs are all from my snippets drawers, so I'm popping across to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Spring Bunnies with Eggs' pre-coloured topper
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Squares Large, Lacy Squares & A2 Matting Basics B
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Snippets: Dark blue card, Wild Rose Studio Valetta Garden paper, Easter and zigzag peel offs 

I layered the paper onto dark blue card and attached it to the left side of my card.  I would have liked to cover the whole card with this bright paper, but I had to do the best I could with a snippet!  The topper was already die cut, but I placed it inside a Classic Square die, taping it so it wouldn't move, and then embossed the edge.  This was layered onto a die cut and embossed dark blue Lacy Square and attached to the card front.  I die cut and embossed a small oblong from dark blue card and attached the Easter peel off, I then attached it to the card with Pinflair glue.  To finish I attached a narrow zigzag peel off to a very thin strip of blue card and attached it to the lower section of the card.

This is a fabulous card, Kath! I actually love the effect created by only the snippet panel you had of that pretty paper! It is a keeper of a sketch and you're a winner in my book!! Hugs, Darnell
