And another Easter Card for CTC#266

Hello and Welcome to another Sunday Night Blog Hop and Challenge CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit, and we love to CASE from our Stampin' Up! catalogues.  

No photo description available.

This week, the challenge is to create an Easter Card featuring this layout below!!  

Image may contain: possible text that says 'CASEING THE CATTY #266'

My card this week is similar to last week - same stamp set and same layout (of course) but different techniques and colours.  

The stamp set is Hold Onto Hope which coordinate with the Crosses of Hope dies which have a few lovely crosses which are just lovely.  

The gold oval frame is actually  left over from another project!!  They were sitting on my desk waiting for a project to use them!!! 

This is a recessed panel card - the central panel was embossed with the Coastal Weave embossing folder and then I've sponged it with So Saffron and spritzed using some Champagne Mist to continue the gold theme.  

The cross was made using 2 of the Crosses of Hope dies and then I've recessed the smaller cross inside the large one.  When the inside cross was cut I then used it on the inside of the card near the greeting.

The floral spray was coloured using marker with So Saffron and Old Olive.  

Up next is the gorgeous Peta.

We would love you to join in the fun with our challenge too!  Use the layout map as your starting point, get creating and then upload your photo to our facebook challenge page.  

This weekend is an exciting new event - an Online Craft Show!!  How cool is that!!  Come along and see me at the show (from the comfort of your pyjamas at home!!! )
