3D Easter Card

Good morning to you all.  Its bitterly cold here in Blackpool there was such an icy wind yesterday so I am staying in today!

I have made an Easter card for my aunt and done a little bit of 3D on it. I really love the cards that Debby from A Scrapjourney does so I thought I would have a little go.  Now I only did a small part of my image but it did take forever to do!

The image is Hydrangea and Butterfly by Stitchy Bear (they have a sale on all week).  I coloured it with my copics and then printed out 3 more copies and coloured various parts and layered them up with silicone glue.  I added the sentiment to the middle before I printed it.  I used some Stickles to the butterfly, I should have added another layer to him but when I realised this I had already printed the images and couldn't remember what size I had made them!  The gingham paper is Pink Petticoat.  Here is a side view:

My aunt always likes to read the words in a card so I found a nice verse and printed that off on some pearl paper for the inside.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Glitter n Sparkle - Easter/Spring Colours
2 Sisters Challenge - Flowers for Spring
A Gem of a Challenge - Easter/Spring
Di's Digi Designs - Easter/Spring
Sweet Stampin' - Easter
Digi Haven - Easter
Polkadoodles - Happy Easter
Stempelsonne - Easter

Well I intend to have a full day crafting today apart from some baking and cooking for the freezer in preparation for Easter.  I am trying to get all DT work done until May so from 22 cards I have 8 left to do!  I hope you have a wonderful day whatever you are doing.  Thank you so much for calling by and take care xx
