Happy Easter at Basic Grey Challenges

Hi there - we have another challenge for you today over at Basic Grey Challenges!!  With Easter coming up could the theme be anything but Easter!  I, for one, am looking forward to the extra bank holidays as long as the weather keeps nice!! (Currently snowing here in London and we have a drive up to Norwich today, eek!)
For my card, I chose this gorgeous Mo Manning digi image of the March Hare -isn't he perfect for Easter cards, just click on the name to go to him and Mo's Digital Pencil.

I coloured him with my Pro and Flex markers and I think this is the first card in a long time that I feel happy with my colouring - while not completely gone, my mojo seems to have been on a bit of go slow lately!
My Basic Grey papers are a mixture of PB&J and Sweet Threads, the little sentiment is again cut with that Stampin Up punch -and the sentiment is Lili of theValley.  The rolled flowers are from a Marianne die and the leaves are a mixture of Martha Stewart and Woodware punches.

I do hope you will play along with us this challenge, just remember that you need to use a Basic Grey product and point out what that item is, especially if you want to be in with a chance of winning our fabulous regular prize of a $25 dollar voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp online store. Also do check out the makes by my teamies at Basic Grey challenges - they are all fabulous!!


I'd also like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Easter Parade
Paper Crafting Journey - Ribbon or Lace
Crafts and Me - Buttons and Bows
Creative Moments - Animals
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Easter/Spring

Your last photo has disappeared again, Julie. But the first two are brilliant. I love your out of bounds layers. These are perfect paper choices. Lovely rolled roses and pretty bow and flower in the opposite corner and your colouring is spot on with this cute guy. A fabulous card! hugs, Lesley

Julie! Awe, girl! I love it! Really pretty color! I don't know why I never use green because I love it when other people do. The dotted bow is a perfect addition!!
Be very careful in the snow! I can't believe you are having those temp right now. We have been laying by the pool ourselves! haha!
Hugs, Dena
