Happy Easter

** Winner at The Squirrel and The Fox! **

Good morning, everyone! Happy 2014! I'm excited to share my DT inspiration project for the first challenge of the year at Love To scrap! Challenge Blog... LTSCB #21 - Anything Goes, sponsored by Technique Junkies and The Paper Nest Dolls! Yep, that's right - we have two sponsors lined up for most of our challenges this year, and that means two prizes! Everyone loves Anything Goes, so come play with us! :)

I have four Technique Junkies CDs and love every one of them... so many fun folds and projects, and I have vowed to try every one of those folds and projects! The new fold I used for my Happy Easter card is a side step tri which I modified slightly from the instructions to make the center portion wider to accommodate my adorable Bunny Love Avery image from The Paper Nest Dolls. I used some fun 6x6 Easter papers that I bought a while back and hadn't had an opportunity to use.

This is my first-ever side step card and I just love how it turned out. It definitely helps to use an adorable image! ;) Isn't she the cutest?!

Here's an angled view so you can see the actual fold a little better. Looks way more complicated than it really is. A couple cuts and scores with mountain and valley folds! ;)

I'm proud to enter my adorable side step card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury lavendar cardstock; dark purple cardstock from stash
  • First Edition Spring Drop 6x6 paper pad with carrot stickers
  • The Paper Nest Dolls Bunny Love Avery digital image
  • Copics: YG13/17/61/67, BV13/17, C3/5, R20/83, Y17/21, E00/33/37
  • Sentiment from the Stamp Camp Simple Sentiments 1 stamp set
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags One die (inside portion)
  • Zva Creative white flat-back pearls

Hope you've found some inspiration to create a fun project for our Anything Goes challenge! To get your mojo going, be sure to check out the fun Technique Junkies CDs and the adorable stamps and other goodies that The Paper Nest Dolls offers! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
