OCC....In Your Easter Bonnet




Happy Saturday Peeps!!
It is time for another new challenge over at Our Creative Corner.
This week our hostess is the fabulous Marcy Kimiski.
Here is her challenge for us:

"In Your Easter Bonnet" challenge for you this week, 
is to design a card/project that is inspired by a frilly Easter bonnet.  
Use elements that you would put onto your own bonnet, such as lace, flowers, pearls, etc. 


I pulled out a retired  Stampin Up set, that I love,  called "Abundant Hope". You all know I love to watercolor and these daffodils are so pretty, I used daffodil delight and a bit of pumpkin pie for the flower heads, the leaves are colored with wild wasabi.
I stamped the flower images again on another piece of card stock and colored and cut out and added to the image with some dimesionals.
My "Easter Bonnet" elements are the lace doily, daffodil ribbon and the pretty pearls.

Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog 
to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge. 
I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do, don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
