Hello All and welcome to a fun new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.  15th of March already!  Where is this year going!

Shaz choose a great theme to get you all in a Spring mood and that’s Easter Parade. So we’d like to see Easter related cards or pastels, chocolate, chicks, eggs etc.  Here in Michigan it’s definitely all green, the problem is, it’s still hidden under a blanket of white, lol!  But I hope not for much longer.  Making my card for this month certainly put me in a bright and happy mood.

I used a sweet little image and sentiment from Toodles & Binks (couldn’t leave out the chocolate either!) that I coloured with Prisma pencils and added some stamped “grass” fronds to.  I picked some pretty papers from my stash, all loose bits collected from various places over the years, mostly freebies from magazines.  I also added some punched leaves, pearls, flowers, faux stitching and a Martha Stewart border punch.

We hope you have time to join in with us this month.  We have the wonderful Marianne Designs sponsoring us again this month and you can win this fantastic stamp and die set.

Don’t forget to pop over to the main Sparkles blog to see the wonderful inspiration from my teamies, hope to see you there.
