Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone! It is also time for my 2nd design team make for Country View Crafts Challenges and today is the very last day of our March Challenge. The monthly challenges are hosted over on Facebook as it makes it easier for everyone who wants to enter, to do so. You don't need a blog or an Instagram account, just head over to the group and join in with the fun! The link is here and if you are not already a member just request to join and we will love to welcome you over there. It is also be a place you can see Country View Craft products, the latest releases etc etc. We have a happy membership of over 300 crafters already and we are growing every day. You can enter the challenges up to 5 times as you like as long as you use products or brands which are stocked on the Country View Website. 

I try to link up the products I use in my posts but obviously stock on the CVC website sells out quickly . Some may be out of stock when you click on the links. If they are just fill in the email notification and you will be emailed when they are back in stock. This is the link to the website   Remember that postage is FREE on all UK orders over £20. 

The theme for March is "Rabbits, hares or Easter" and I went with the rabbit and Easter theme to make this card.

Once again I used the gorgeous Happy bunny set by Visible Image which is also part of the brilliant prize bundle this month. More about that at the end of this post.

This time I teamed it with the daffodils from the Golden Daffodils set

This is what I got up to;
I used these distress ink pads to make my background. I then stamped the Golden Daffodils in the centre using Versafine claire nocturne and clear heat embossed it. I then coloured it using distress pencils.  I also added some scorched timber distress ink which you can see in my finished photos.
I stamped and heat embossed the bunnies from the set using scorched timber distress embossing glaze

I also stamped the single daffodil head and coloured that using the pencils too. 

then I added it to the image.

I matted it onto green metallic card and then a white 7x5" card blank. I added some sequins as a finishing touch.

Here it is;

and 1 final shot

The challenge is open worldwide.

Remember you can find me most days over on Instagram here @jane.tyrrell where I do share many, many more makes then I have the time to blog. 

Remember to link up your March makes today for a chance to win this fabulous prize

The April challenge opens tomorrow; which happens to be my birthday and also my 8th anniversary of joining the Country View Crafts design team. I think that a glass of something bubbly or a G and T might be in order at some point to celebrate! 

Have a lovely Easter's so good to see the lighter evenings.

Bye for now,
