With Easter not too far away I have a CAS Easter card for you, using the colours from the Just Add Ink #156 colour challenge. These colours were selected by my friend Christine, the queen of colour challenges. They are a lovely colour combo of bright, subtle and neutral:
I rarely use Bashful Blue except for baby cards, but it is a lovely colour and provides a soft background for the bold Raspberry Ripple and Early Espresso. I have used the Honeycomb embossing folder to create my Easter egg. It was brayered first with Raspberry Ripple ink and I'm pleased with the effect. The bunny was stamped in Early Espresso and clear embossed for more definition and texture. The photo unfortunately doesn't do justice to the colours.
For the inside, I have used the Bashful Blue spotted DSP as a background for more doily lace and the floral egg from the (sadly) retired stamp set 'Easter Blossoms'.
