FCCB #002

Let me start by saying I am still amazed that I made the Top 3 at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog, thank you to the Design Team.

Now onto this weeks challenge which is:
Easter Excitement with a color theme:
Create an Easter Themed project using a Pastel color palette.
Here is my take on the challenge, I used the sketch from OCC Sketch Challenge #8, but it has no stamping on it so I will not be entering it into there challenge.

I used the Easter Cartridge for the Scalloped Egg, Normal Egg, Rabbit, border on the egg and Happy Easter.

Supplies: Cricut Easter Cartridge, ColorBox Ink, Making Memories Garden Party PP & Grace Taylor Family Time, Kaisercraft pearls, Google Eye and ribbon from stash.
