Easter Parade for digital tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope your having a good week so far!

Mine started out with a broken Laptop, it might got hit by lightning, it won't even read the recovery CD so I won't be having a laptop for a while. Hate using the desktop as it is upstairs and it's sooooo slow. Not to mention I had to go relocate the images that I purchased last couple of months because I hadn't moved them to my USB stick yet. The ones I remembered I was able to save again through my email or the store where I got them from, but I am sure there are a few that I don't remember buying :-(

But enough of my whining,

as it is time for a new challenge over at digital tuesday. It was Lorraine's turn to host and she chose

Easter Parade

as our theme! I hope you get to play along for a chance at a fantastic prize from our sponsor "Pixie Dust Studio".


I really wanted to use this cute image by Phindy's Place, I don't think I have ever used it! I also really wanted to use the gorgeous meadow background which was recently released from Whimsy Stamps by Crissy Armstrong. Since I have yet to learn how to merge images (and since I don't know if these 2 companies allow actual merging with other companies) I just cut the bunny image out and glued it onto the background.

I used my derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil for coloring/blending. I actually started out with this week's sketch saturday but it looks nothing like it anymore so I won't be entering my card there. The piece of designer paper is from a DCWV stack, and the blue is bazzil. I embellished with prima flowers, punched out butterflies, sticky pearls and buttons and of course glitter. Decided it needed something else, so I did some paper piercing.

I'd also love to enter my card to the following challenges:
Bee crafty (easter)
Catch the bug (anything goes)
Little Claire's (spring or spring colors)
Aly's Sunday Challenge (bunnies)
Creative Cowgirls (spring or easter)

That's all from me for today. Hope you liked the card.

Have a great day!
