Here comes Peter Cottontail!...JUGS25 48

Mona Pendleton | Friday, March 19, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | , ,

Hi Everyone! Thanks to all who played along last week & made a flap fold card :) This week Lisa, is our wonderful Hostess for the Just Us Girls Color Challenge #25, JUGS25 & has colored our world with some fun pastel colors! I hope you come play with Just Us Girls & our March Featured Designer: Stephanie.
Here is my Easter Greetings card:
I randomly stamped the Easter egg image using the various pastel colors to create the background paper on the upper half of the card. To create the lower half background paper, I inked up my brayer with SU Bashful Blue ink & applied it to a Quikutz embossing folder then ran a piece of cs through my die cutting machine. I have always said "one stampers trash, is another stampers treasure"! Peter Rabbit here is my little treasure! :) Several years ago, our dear friends Linda & Tony relocated from Phoenix to Austin. Linda lightened her load & sold all of her stamping supplies to me because she no longer stamped! Yahoo! Peter Rabbit hopped right down the bunny trail & found a new home! My stamp collection :)

To make the bottom decorative border, I inked up the Easter egg image, stamped with the various inks, then cut each out individually & adhered them to the Martha Stewart punched border :)

I hope you join along & show us what you can do with these colors! Be Sweet :)
