As you may have guessed from the title, the challenge over at Creative Card Crew this week was to make an Easter Card. I don't tend to bother with Easter cards, so this is the first I've ever made and has just been given to a friend. I've copied the design of the chick from Pink Petticoat's free Easter download (here); as it's a free download I'm hoping it's okay to copy it! I drew the shapes on pastel yellow and pink card, then mounted on foam tape to provide some depth. The backing paper is Papermania; I've coloured in the centres of the flowers with a glittery gel pen to add some interest. The paper flowers have Papermania brads in the centres. As usual , I've struggled with the sentiment - I hope it doesn't look too bad.

I love the 3D effect, you are a girl after my own heart. I lurve effects on a card and depth. It's gorgeous.

I love the glittery flower centres.. It looks absolutely gorgeous. The trouble with gorgeous cards is you can never show all the sparkle and effects in a photograph and I just know it would be so pretty! Make more Easter cards ;)

Have a great weekend
