Spring on In!

WOW! Time is just flying by.... only one week until Easter! I have been busy with some custom graduation announcement orders, and haven't had much time to just have fun in the scrap room. But, Easter has always been one of my favs! I love all of the bright, fresh colors, and thoughts of summer. So, I just had to make a little time for a fun card.

I used Ripe Avocado Perfect Match cardstock from PaperTrey Ink as the base card, measuring 6" square. The plaid paper is by My Mind's Eye and is called, "Check Him Out" from the Just Dreamy line. I used my Scalloped Oval Spellbinder die to make the "egg" shaped shaker. A simple oval cutter was used to cut the window, off-setting it slightly to mimic an egg shape. The adorable image is a Huggabugg from Stampingbella. I colored it using my prismacolors and mineral spirits.
