Short and Tweet

Good Easter morning! I am going to keep this short as I a). have only had 4 hrs. sleep and need to go back to bed and b). have a list of things to get done yet this morning so we can have a lovely family Easter so let's get to it.

Today's challenge at Corrosive Challenges by Janet is a sketch challenge that is simple and sweet and we would love to have you play along. Here's the sketch and my springy sample:











My image is from Unity Stamp Co and the paper is from Basic Grey. Here's a couple of quick Big Ideas used in today's card:

* Mat your image using the same shape but turned to 90 degrees for a different look. Both my image and my mat were cut using Nestabilities Label 10 (I think - might want to verify that if interested) but I rotated the mat so it created more visual interest - and also gave me a great place to add my pearls.

* Add a strip of embossed paper on a patterned DP. As long as the image or texture of the embossed piece coordinates with the DP, the two will look great together!

So how about playing along with us this week? Create your project and link it up at the Challenge blog for a chance to win this month's prize package!

I will be back tomorrow with the 1st Heart 2 Heart Challenge - I hope you'll join me! Until then, have a wonderful Easter Sunday~
