Good Thursday Morning Peeps!! Hope your week is going well! We are on the down side of the week. It is rainy a cloudy and cold here today. Awwww Spring.......where did you go?

Today's card is made with this
weeks sketch challenge on Splitcoast.

I am still loving the "Wagon Full of Fun" Stamp set. This time I added the wagon and some cute little Easter eggs.

I first saw the idea for the duck pulling the wagon here on Becky Roberts blog. Her card is just too cute, so I sit out to make my own version.

I stamped the wagon, two eggs and two ducks onto watercolor paper and colored them with my aquapainter and markers. I then cut them all out, the second duck I only used the wing, to layer. On the wagon I cut out on the spaces between the rails and I cut off the handle to be able to move it to the other end for the duck to hold.

I made my grass border by just making small little cuts in my strip of certainly celery card stock. I added chocolate chip brads for the wheels and the handle connect. I also used brads on the eggs. The whole scene was glued onto PTI white card stock and layered with bashful blue and so saffron card stock.

The DS paper is from the Delicate Dots pack from SAB and so is the so saffron ribbon. I loved them both and stocked up on them while I could. I have to say I love these two pieces of paper from the pack the most.

The paper is split in the middle and mounted onto some certainly celery and the base of the card is bashful blue. It is all so "Springy". The sentiment is from the same set and stamped onto PTI white with black stazon and punched out with the word window punch and attached directly to the image panel.

The main panel s on dimensionals. I also added three so saffron brads in the upper left corner.

Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
