Quirky Crafts 2011: Challenge 8 - Sparkly, Punchy Easter and/or Spring

This challenge is sponsored by Digital Delights by Looby Lou, and these delightful Easter images are available from our sponsor, see more Design Team examples and different images on the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog

The challenge as set by Caro is Easter or Spring, and you must use at least one punch and sparkle.

My first card is made using sparkly purple card punched around the page with Martha Stewart butterfly punches. The image is coloured with Promarkers and cut out with Nestabilities. The green butterflies are some new Nellie Snellen punch and emboss sets I got at the Shepton Mallet show. Had to have them! The butterflies are sparkled with Stickles glitter glue bodies and Papermania self adhesive gemstones.

The second card is Barnaby Cruisin image coloured with Promarkers and cut with Nestabilties. The carrots are part of a scalloped rectangle cut with Nestabilities and the greenery is a Martha Stewart fern punch, the bottom of the panel is punched with a Martha Stewart lace border punch. Flowers with sparkly gem centres were from a box sold by Lakeland when they sold craft items. Ribbon from stash is also sparkly with gold edges.

I have entered these in the I Love Promarkers Challenge Easter, and the Pollycraft challenge Easter, and Stamping for the Weekend Easter challenge, and The Crafty Pad - Spring challenge.
