Easter Wishes for An Oldie But Goodie

Good morning. Well we had a glorious sunshiney day yesterday and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the sun stays around for a little longer - especially this Saturday when I will be at my lovely blogging and DT buddy Claire's wedding :o)

Our new challenge at


this week is


and here's my DT card 

I used two 6" square cards to make the base card with the fronts folded back to make a sort of gatefold card.

The image is my more than six months old item and is from Just Inklined - available here and has been coloured with PM's and Flexmarkers and then mat and layered onto Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle

Design Papers - Craftwork Cards
Corner Flourish - Memory Box Madera Carner
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Adhesive Gems - from stash

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my DT buddies - you won't be disappointed.
Don't forget to use at least 1 item that is 6 months or more old and tell us what it is in order to qualify for the prize on offer this fortnight.
