Penny Black and More - April Challenge

This month at Penny Black and More our challenge theme is  "All Things Spring". As always we  have some wonderful prizes to give away, just be sure to follow our simple rules to play along and you will be entered into the prize drawings. This month we are being sponsored by Penny Black, Crafty Ribbons, Tattered Lace and Stix2.

For today's card I decided to make a girly Easter Card using the Penny Black Stamp set Easter Parade.

I used my current favorite coloring medium again - Zig clean color brush pens - on Winsor & Newton Watercolor Marker paper. The image has been heat embossed. I wanted the coloring to be light and pastel so I used the lightest colors from the set.

An old SU flower trio punch was used to punch out the cute flowers and sticky halfback pearls as flower centers. I've had the pretty designer paper for a while, I think it's by Bo Bunny, but not sure...
Sentiment is also by Penny Black, a little wood mounted stamp. To finish off the card I added wink of stella to the eggs and the girl's bow, and did some paper piercing.

Inside I used another cute stamp from the Penny Black set, sentiment is from Stampin Up (really old) and then I decorated with a matching strip of designer paper.

And that is all for today. Thanks so much for visiting! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
