Stampin 411 #245and The Paper Players #85

Hello to all my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Had a bit of time this weekend to join in on a couple sketch challenges. The first one if from the Paper Players. It is a Theme challenge for a Springtime card The second a Sketch challenge with Stamping 411

and here is the Sketch for Stamping 411;

Now for my card

I pulled out a retired SU Easter set called Easter Blossoms  and the Famous Chocolate Bunny from last year I just love this little stamp. I placed the eggs in some grass to make them ready for picking up on Easter morning. The eggs are also included in that set,  they emboss beautifully BTW! I used Wild Wasabi, Elegant Purple and Detail Gold Embossing Powders on the eggs. The bunny is embossed in clear and stamped on Early Espresso CS. Do you remember Cameo Coral CS from SU? I found a few bags of prepared cards I pre-cut for a class last year. I always prepare a couple extra when I do a class. I thought the DSP and the CS went well together for a springtime theme. Now here is a look at the inside.

Hope you like it.

I was also playing around with a CAS design I had floating around in my head. It took me quite a while to make this next card. These CAS cards (For Me) are difficult to make even thought they are clean and simple  you still have to make sure it Pops too! Let me know what you think about this one .

I have an old SU daisy punch that I thought would be good for the look I was trying to achieve. Here is a look at the inside, the daises carry the theme .      

That's it for this evening/am. I have to get some sleep.

I hope you all had a great weekend and found some time to create!
Thanks for stopping by.
