Colour Create Challenge 'Chocolate and Cream' and Happy Easter

Happy Easter. Had a lovely day - went for a wood walk this morning then had some crafting time this afternoon. We went to the Monkton Nature Reserve where there were lots of flowers in bloom and birds singing. I have used a picture I took this morning in the card I have made this afternoon for the Colour Create Challenge because the scene made me think of how nature is slower to change and therefore links us to the past. I have altered the image using a program which allowed sepia and the vintage cropping. I've used part of a Yeats' poem for the text which I printed on the background and put on a K&Co tag. The card is opalescent and the stamp is a dovecraft one. The Fiskars paper edgers give the frame I made a distressed feel.




The biscornu is developing too.





Hope everyone has had a lovely day - thanks for looking. XXX
