Happy Spring!

Hi there! I have a quick card to share on this beautiful Monday! I saw this fabulous challenge from Curtain Call and HAD to play along, Reverse Confetti just released some stamps that are PERFECT for this challenge!

So I don't have jellybeans, but I have these adorable eggs I created instead! They have the same mottled pattern as the jellybeans so I'm calling it a win, lol! I created the eggs by spraying three pieces of watercolor paper with different colored Distress Ink Sprays. I picked the pattern I liked and, using the More than Jellybeans Confetti Cuts, cut out my eggs!

Next, I took some pinking shears and cut the tops off the eggs. I cut out the chicks from The Tweet Life with the Tweet Life Confetti Cuts, stamped them, and colored them. I positioned them behind the egg to look like they were hatching:) 

The "Happy Spring" is from one the Spring Fling Quick Card Panels. I cut the grass off the QCP so I could extend the panel. I used my pinking shears again to cut the grass from the bottom of the QCP. To finish it up, I stamped the "tweet" along the top and right side and added a bit of the ribbon banner from the Double Banner Garland Confetti Cuts. I love this negative banner die, it's so fun!

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great week!
