Happy Easter

...to everyone and hope like me you are getting to relax a little (and here in the UK enjoy the glorious weather we are having).  No crafting for me (sad face) as we are visiting both mine and my hubby's parents this weekend but I do have a card to post that I made on Wednesday that I would like to enter into a few challenges. I was in my local Dunelm Mill shopping for house things when I spotted this adorable stamp in their newish craft section, so adorable in fact I used him that very evening to make this card.


I've tried something new for me, which is white on white and apart from the colouring on the image have just accented the card with some punched flowers and pearls (image, pearls and flowers coloured with ProMarkers to co-ordinate). I wanted to add some texture to the white background so the first white panel was made by embossing with a Swiss dots embossing folder and then glittering the dots with Stickles and the second panel was made using by scoring even lines with my Martha Stewart score board and again glittering the embossed lines.
Items:
5x5 white card blank, white card & paper from stash, X-Cut flower punch, pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts, tag from Rymans Stationers, brad from stash, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Martha Stewart score board, ProMarkers, Stardust Stickles and Image and Sentiment Stamp 'Parker the Panda' from the Hels Cuppleditch Trimcraft range.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
