Enjoy an Egg-cellent Easter - Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not #316

For this week's sketch by Donna, with Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not, I thought I would make an Easter card. After all, Easter is only a matter of week's away. The optional theme?  A burst of color.

I made the central focus of the card a shaker element and placed colorful embellishments around it.



I made the shaker the usual way, using layering circle framelits, and the Sprinkle Embellishments as the "shaker" elements. These elements are from the Occasions Catalogue and come in wonderful Easter colors.

Three different embellishments, all symbols of Easter, surround one side of the shaker.

The first one has an Old Olive pansy flower base with a Daffodil flower adhered to it. This flower was made using the Basket Bunch stamp set, but I chose to fussy cut it rather than using the coordinating framelits.  It was coloured using the new watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I made 3 flowers, and the other two were used to decorate the inside.

On a scallop garden green circle, 5 tiny colorful Easter eggs are added. These are die cut using the Basket Builder framelits because all 5 eggs can be die cut at the same time.

The lower-most embellishment is a Daffodil Delight star on which there  is an Easter bunny holding a basket.

Don't you just love the Easter colors?
