Easter - Dawn Heald

Morning all,

Happy Easter!!

Hope you are all having a good, restful
time.  Pity about the weather but we
wouldn't expect anything else!

Dawn is here today to show
you her really lovely Easter card.

Dawn says -
Hi crafty friends, Happy Easter and hope
 you have a lovely long weekend. Today's
 card is simple but shows the versatility of 
our day to day Crafting supplies. I try
 to use these to fit in with holidays, 
celebrations and special occasions rather
 than purchase a lot of specific items that
 would only rarely be used. That's just
 my way. I hope this gives you some
 ideas or inspiration and to look at 
what you do have, to go with some new treats!

To make this card....
Ink the edges of a card blank and stick a
 base of pattern paper to this, also
 with inked edges.

Next cut or die cut an oval shape. Stamp
 the PaperArtsy circles all over, colour 
with Distress crayons, by applying colour 
directly and blend with water brush.  Stamp,
colour, cut out the bird in same way.

Attach ribbon across the middle of your egg.
 Then on the reverse of the oval egg stick 
ribbon around the edge, pleating as you go.

Attach to you card with double thickness
 of foam pads. Same with bird.

Simple, none specific stash that shows
 the occasion. I hope. Lol!

This is so pretty, love the soft colours
used and perfect for Easter!!
Thank you Dawn!
