Hi everyone! I'm totally stoked to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #28 - Scraplift This! We've challenged our designers, guest designers and participants to scraplift (that's scrapper lingo for "steal") 3 or more elements from Cathy's layout and use them on your project! Here's Cathy's gorgeous layout:

This is going to be a blast - come play with us! Our sponsors this time are the wonderful Fred, She Said Designs and Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and each of them are offering a pretty awesome prize!

I chose that tantalizing bunny, Martini Bianca, from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps for my fun Easter card! The elements I scraplifted from Cathy's layout are the fancy border, a few of the colors (mainly orange and some blue), the large circle and the number 3 (3 orange roses, 3 peach roses, 3 gold gumdrops and 3 layers of fancy border).

I just can't tell you how much fun I had with this image, layering the coordinating papers and arranging all the elements I lifted from Cathy's layout! I stamped "Surprise!" in a vertical fashion for some fun! And of course I had to create a pretty big bow!

And I have to tell you that I ended up putting a bathing suit on Bianca since this is a family-friendly blog! She was showing a little tooooo much skin! Bwahaha! But I just love her!

I kept the inside relatively simple with some layering and a Happy Easter greeting.

Proud to enter my whimsical Easter card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury ivory and charcoal brown cardstock; DCWV textured rust cardstock
  • My Mind's Eye Unforgettable and Howdy Doody 6x6 papers
  • Dr. Digi's House of Stamps Martini Bianca digital image
  • Copics: E000/00/11/37/99, C1/3/5, R24, B91
  • Stamp Camp Simple Sentiments 1
  • Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Spellbinders Classic Circles dies
  • SNS Scallop border die
  • Studios Blackbird ribbon
  • YNS gold gumdrops; single gold flat-back pearl
  • WOC flowers

I hope you've been inspired a little bit to play with us this time! You have our permission to scraplift! Teeheehee! And be sure to check out all the amazing digis at Fred, She Said Designs and Dr. Digi's House of Stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
