SUO Challenges 94

I do try every week but I’m just not a fan of Monday’s. It started out as a nice sunny day but by 10:00am it was overcast and a little chilly. Work was busy in the morning and then we had a forum at the Carlyle. I did the A/V set up and of course the place didn’t have their sound set up correctly. Never a dull moment! LOL! After work was much better, dinner then card class and Andrew stopped by after. The end of the day was much better than the start, that’s for sure!

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog and this time around our theme is Easter…

I have done a couple of Easter projects recently and I wanted this one to be simple but fun. The base of my card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock and the background is a piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper backed by a piece of Tangerine Tango. I took one of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies and sponged it with some Gumball Green and adhered it to the background, cutting a piece of the left side off. The tag is a piece of Whisper White that I punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. Across the bottom I used my Fringe Scissors and some Gumball Green to make some “grass”. My greeting comes from the Eggstra Spectacular Stamp Set and is stamped on the tag in Basic Black. A piece of Daffodil Delight Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon goes through the top and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. Like I said, simple but fun! I really like the sponged doily, it creates a nice break between the tag and the DSP. So there you have my Design Team card for the SUO Challenges Easter theme. Take some time to pay a visit to the blog and see what the other talented designers have for your inspiration and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your Easter card! Thanks as always for stopping by today, have a terrific Tuesday!
