Happy Easter

Hello friends, I hope this finds you all well and ready for the Easter break. It has turned cold and windy here today after a beautiful warm and sunny day yesterday, lets hope the sun puts it's hat back on for the weekend.
I was lucky enough o get to Ally Pally last weekend, it was good to go to a show down South and see some of the stands that rarely make it above Birmingham.......I spent way too much!!...but I had to justify going all that way didn't I??

OK on to the Easter surprise there then!
Sorry about the photo it just didn't turn out as it should and the card base is pale yellow/cream even though it looks white on the photo.It looks much better in the flesh so to speak.

I decided to give the gilding flakes an airing. I used Adorable Scorable card in a pale yellow/cream and stamped the Indigo-blu Easter egg in Flitter glue before applying  the flakes --Morris Dance.I pre dusted the card with an anti-static pad as it is glossy card.
Mounted on a thin border of gold mirri card and then on a base card made from the same Adorable Scorable (this does what it says on the tin and creases without the cracks).I am really pleased with how it turned out...the colours in the Morris dance gilding flakes are just so lovely.

Well I wish each and everyone of you a very Happy Easter, enjoy whatever you are doing...hope it includes eating lots of chocolate! Thank you so much for stopping by and for any comments you may be kind enough to leave really makes my day!

Till next time crafty hugs xxx
