House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge 141 - EASTER

I often look at the challenges over at House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and decided this was one I just had to enter.  I am always in awe of my blogger buddy Kate's creations and this week is no exception.  This is what they had to say:

Our super talented Teamie Lori Barnett, is hosting this new Challenge and chose...

*** E a s t e r ***

Include something that relates to Easter somewhere on your project. ie., Bunny, Chick, Egg, Jelly Beans, Cross, Easter paper, Easter colors, a sentiment....Anything that relates to Easter as long as you use a House-Mouse, Gruffies and, or, Happy Hoppers image. 

Hurry and Play along for your great chance to win some fabulous prizes!

For my card I've used a HM image which I think is called I'll get it - so cute with the tiddler running on behind waiting to catch the egg.  I decided to decoupage the image to give it dimension and added  Crystal Lacquer on the eggs and their eyes, noses etc.  I die cut the image using my Spellbinders Marvellous Squares and mounted it on an Eyelet Square die cut which I had threaded ribbon through.  This in turn was laid on a square of card which had been embossed with the SU honeycomb e/f.  I added some lace around this last layer.  The base card is 8x8 and I've added a layer of Anna-Marie's gingham paper.  The fancy elements are from the Venetian Accents set and I've then added flowers and gems from my stash.  The sentiment is a very old one which doesn't have a makers name on it.

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you all have a wonderful Easter break and don't eat too many eggs!!!  lol
