Easter Escapade #2: Candy Floss Easter

I'm strapped for time today so it's going to be a quick show and tell. We are on to the second card in my Easter Escapade series. Today I have a sweet confection to share with you...think candy floss, sugar coated almonds and Chocolate Buttons ala Cadbury's. Here it is:

The papers are by My Mind's Eye. Instead of my usual 1/8" borders, I went for 1/4".... not sure if I like it as much.

I popped the image up with foam tape and for layering I used  Spellbinder Postage Stamp die. For added sweetness... chocolate buttons. Sorry if I mislead you but these are real chocolate button... not the ones by Cadbury's which I adore!  

Close-up of my basket of sweet goodies. The stamps are from WMS Spring Basket set, coloured with SN markers.  It's quite a busy, fussy card so I kept the colouring plain and simple.

On the inside I just had to throw in an extra egg for my eggstra special friend.

I'm taking this card to: Paper Playtime #5, Nana Vic's Challenge #4, Victorine Originals #54 and Papertake Weekly - "Anything Goes"; My Craft Spot #89 "Tasty Treats"; Whoopsi Daisy Challenge "2 Patterned Papers" and Just Us Girls - sketch.

Another card I want to show you is this simple one I made for a friend. She'll be featuring her awesome ceramic creations at a craft fair soon and I want to give a little note to wish her luck.

That's all from me today.... must dash! Thanks for taking the time to drop in. See ya tomorrow!

And oh, don't forget, my Spring Giveaway is still on and will close tomorrow on 7 March 2013 at 9:00pm GMT. If you are a Tatty Teddy fan, you cannot miss this giveaway. Click HERE to participate.
