BC201 Easter Egg Flowers

Happy Friday everyone. It's a COLD one here today. The weather here is Bizarre to say the least. It's only 11 degrees outside right now but in a couple of days it's suppose to get up to 50. I long for solid Spring temperatures which I'm sure will eventually happen.
So are you ready for the BC Challenge this week.
This is the sketch our wonderful List Mom, Lisa gave us to work with. It's really different from the sketches I'm use to but I had an idea right away on how to use it (that almost never happens to me) and so I went with it and here is my card:

The DP is an old pattern I've had for years but I thought it would go well with my Stamp. The stamp is from PattiCakes and was purchased years ago too. The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts, also purchased a long time ago. I love that the (E) in Easter is a bunnies head.
Card Stock: Green Galore, Lovely Lilac, Pretty in Pink. It's nice to use up some of the old retired SU colors.
Egg Flowers colored with Copic Markers. Sentiment stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
Swiss Dot embossing folder.
Punch-EK Success.

Glad to have this week over. It really started out rough with the decision to put down our dog, Angel. If you haven't visited her tribute pages you can do so HERE


This is also a Blog Hop and you can participate by leaving a link below to your card using this sketch.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way that the "E" in Easter is a bunny's head! That is way too cool! I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and also tell you how sorry I am for the loss of Angel. I left a comment on her tribute page as well but just wanted you to know my heart goes out to you. I hope you have a good weekend!
