Project 145: MAWTT Easter and Retrosketches challenge

I am so thrilled to have my first challenge as a DT member of Moving Along With the Times. So happy to be a part of it!

The challenge this week is Easter or Spring. Beth gave me this adorable purple chick and egg ribbon and this was the inspriation for the whole card.

I used RetroSketches' layout this week as my template:

I embossed the lilac paper with the rose embossing folder Claire gave me. I added the ribbon to the sentiment card as well as the little tab. The greeting and tulip are both from a Hobbycraft Easter greeting set of peel-offs (also from Beth) and I finished with the candi and little purple daisy bling to balance out the layout.

Originally I didn't put a background paper down but I thought it looked too plain and the gingham really brought it to life. All purple for the Easter holiday - it works, no?

It was a fun little card and I loved how easily it came together. This will likely go to O's grandad, I know he'll appreciate a bit of spring-like cheer!

A special thanks to Claire who has introduced me to MAWTT - I'm so delighted to be on the DT with her.
