EASTER creation fun . . .

Happy Wednesday!

Today I have two challenge cards to share with you and they are both celebrating EASTER.  

First is the challenge over at The Sisterhood.  Tanis is our hostess today and we are celebrating the Easter holiday.  Our sponsor this challenge is AmberInk and the adorable images (Love Bunny Collection) on my card, as well as the background paper, are both from AmberInk.  AmberInk is offering one lucky winner a $15 Gift Certificate.

My only additions to these wonderful AmberInk products are the homemade sentiment tag and the hot pink satin ribbon from Michaels.  I colored my images with Prismacolor markers then cut them out with a Fiskars swivel craft knife.  Faux stitching was also done on the homemade tag for extra dimension.  Hope you like it!

Please be sure to pop on over to our challenge blog for MORE EASTER inspiration from my 'DT Sistahs'. 

Other Challenges:
 The Crazy Challenge #62 - Easter
 OLLCB #77 - Easter

The second challenge card I have to share with you today is for the Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge.  Like I already mentioned, we at Penny's are also celebrating EASTER and are thrilled to have LOTV (Lili of the Valley) as our sponsor this challenge.

The design team LOVED these little bunnies as you will see when you pop over to the challenge blog for more inspiration and to play along!  For this creation I've used scraps of designer paper (Paper Pizazz I believe) for my background panels, faux stitching was created with a pink Prismacolor marker, those same markers were used for the coloring of my image with the exception of the sky which was created with blue chalk and a makeup applicator.  The silk flowers in the corner were purchase in the wedding section of Pat Catan's (an Ohio based crafting store).

Other Challenges:
