FCCB Challenge # 207--Easter

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #207 Easter or use a Bunny

Winner will receive $10 in digital images

Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a lovely Easter!  Today's challenge was to make an Easter card, and I had this lovely digital stamp from Aurora Wings to use.  I sized it in my word processing program, printed it out on SU Whisper White, and colored with markers.  Then I fussy cut it out.

I was thinking of Charleston, Savannah, and New Orleans--the lovely wrought ironwork they have in those cities, and how gorgeous they look in the spring when everything is blooming.  So I decided to use my much neglected Ornamental Iron cartridge.  I cut this gate at 5.5" high.  There was a row of little square cutouts at the bottom which I trimmed off.  I layered it onto some yellow floral patterned paper and placed my image over it, but it looked too stark, so I added a layer of vellum cardstock.  It softened up the wrought iron and allowed the image to really pop.  Since glue shows through vellum, I attached it with brads.  I embossed Easter Wishes from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages on the vellum in black.

Please play along with us at FCCB this week!  Just make a project using Easter or a bunny and at least one Cricut cut and upload it to the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog--that's all there is to it!  You could win $10 worth of digi images from Aurora Wings!

Thanks for dropping by today!  Have a wonderful week!
