Easter with Pattie's Creations

     With Easter only a few days away, I want to share with you a card I made for the "Easter" challenge at Pattie's Creations.  It features a digi from Pattie's called "Decorated Easter Egg."   Did I mention that I've joined the DT at Pattie's?  I'm so tickled.  :-D

     This is a new type of fancy fold card which I first saw on my friend, Teresa's, blog.  I was so intrigued, I knew I had to try it.  If you go to Teresa's blog, you'll find a link to a tutorial on how to make these fun cards.  Here's what the card looks like when it's open.

     The dp came from a stack by The Paper Studio.  I colored the egg with ProMarkers, then fussy cut it with scissors.  The gold netting, the flower, and the bow were all in my stash.

     I hope you'll come play along this month.  Show us the cards you made to celebrate Easter this year or the ones you're making for next year.  There's no requirement to use an image from Pattie's Creations but we'll certainly be tickled if you do.  We're a month long challenge which starts on the first Friday of each month, UK time.  If you're in the US, you'll find the challenge starting on the Thursday evening before.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

    So happy to be on a design team with you! Your first PC project turned out just lovely. I've made one of these card shapes myself and it was actually for one of my PC DT posts too! Love the pretty paper you worked with and that great egg.

    I look forward to seeing more of your creations!
