ODBDSLC57, C4C83 Happy Easter....and more!

Happy weekend!

Do you have anything fun planned? We'll most likely stay at home. The weather is a bit unpredictable this weekend and I think we'll just concentrate on cleaning, doing laundry and hopefully some stampin' :) !!!

If you have some spare time how about playing two really fun challenges??? The first one is the ODBD Shining Light ~ ODBDSLC57. The challenge this week is to create a card/project *WITHOUT ANY COLORING*. You may sponge a background or use colored ink to stamp an image but NO coloring!!!

The second challenge is the Crazy for Challenges ~ C4C83. The task is to create an *Easter Gift*.... make a basket, a box or whatever you wish. Please stop by the C4C blog for all the details.

Here is my idea on both challenges....





I used the beautiful Easter Set from ODBD called I am the Way... This time I used the smaller image from this Set and inked it in SU Peach Parfait. The DP is also from the SU Peach Parfait Collection. The upper part of my card was scored and I added the matching Ribbon as well as a matching Button. I embellished the card a bit more with some Scrapper's Floss, a  punched out MS Border, MS Butterfly and lots of Silver Pearls. The basket was created with the SU.......... Die.  The handle was punched with the same MS Punch and I added some SU Flower Brads on each side.  I pretty much included the same elements as on the card....plus the yummy candy :) !!!

Now it's your turn, but be for you go check out the rest of the ODBD team with their ideas ~ Sabrina, Chris, FranciePat and our Guest Designer Lori.

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you get a chance to play...hugs ~S~
