Hello All

Yet another challenge post.. This post I will be playing with The Card Concept. Their pink eggs nestled in a little nest was enough inspiration to make me want to play. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

The 'nest' may look familiar to some of you. It is usually used a wreath but I thought it would
also make a wonderful nest for our pink eggs.
Heat embossed white using a stencil with pigment in
and white powder. 
I decided to frill the Easter banner. I feel if I didn't it would get lost.
plus it adds a bit of interest.
 Challenges Entered:
The Card Concept: #51- Naturally Pink

Easter is behind us but the season of hope is still in the air. It is this time of year where the seasons change, days get longer, and the rain starts to sprinkle all the plants. Spring break is coming up and we have nothing planned.. Well maybe a road trip or two but other then that we are going to go with it this year. Happy Spring everyone in the Northern Hemisphere. 

I hope you enjoyed your visit and I want to thank you yet again for visiting me. Until next time take care and we will see you soon.

All the best,
