Magnolia Down Under Challenges # 92 and BasicGrey Challenges # 42...Happy Easter!

Hey stampin' friends! I am so glad that it's the weekend aren't you? I know that the weather has been getting better and more spring like and Easter is just around the corner. I know everyone is so busy but I do hope you are able to get a little crafty time this weekend. If so, please join the new challenge that we have at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and BasicGrey Challenges....Easter/Spring! To join the BasicGrey Challenge remember that you need to use al least one BasicGrey product on your card and if you can mention the item you used in your post that helps the DT so much as there are so many products in the BG line, for the MDUC all we ask is that you have one Magnolia image or Doo Hickey Die on your card and that you coloured the image yourself.

At BasicGrey Challenges our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp Superstore has once again offered up a very generous $25 voucher for the Simon Says Superstore. The superstore is just chalked full of gorgeous stamping and crafting goodies. I know you won't have any trouble spending your winnings... if you are the lucky random winner!
So for my card I used my fave BasicGrey Hello Luscious 6x6 paper pad again...sorry but I just cant get enough of this gorgeous paper...it is so luscious!!! I have been dying to ink up this adorable image, Tilda holding egg basket, from the Butterfly Dreams collection. I cut an egg shape on my Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter from Neenah card and a mat from American Crafts cardstock. I stamped Tilda on the paper cut into the egg shape with Memento ink and coloured her with my Copics. I finally used my Stempelglede Grunge collection stamps that I just had to have after admiring all of Inge's gorgeous cards for so long and how she uses the Grunge stamps. I stamped the grunge stamp with Memento Desert Sand ink around the image and I added some shading and grass with my Prismacolour pencils and odorless minerals spirits. To embellish I added Martha Stewart seam binding, Prima flowers with BasicGrey Hello Luscious painted brads and some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. The sentiments are Melissa Frances rub-ons from the Spring Fling sheet and I added just a bit of bling here and there. 

Well, thanks so much for popping by and having a wee peek at my Easter card for the BasicGrey Challenge and Magnolia Down Under challenge. Please visit the MDUC DT and BG DT and see all their gorgeous Easter creations, leave them some love too and then join us!

Have a stampin' great day!

I like your egg shaped oval - very effective & the way you've matched the light green of your paper with the grass colouring & your brad - it's the detials like that which really catch the eye.
