JUGS #78


It's time for another sketch challenge from Just Us Girls! (Here's a link.) I really liked this sketch, and thought it would work for my nephew's Easter card--yes, this is an Easter card! He is very firm about which colors are "girl colors" and which colors are "boy colors." (Are all 4-year-olds like this?) And he reminds me frequently that his favorite color is green. So, no girly pastels for Adrian! I thought this cute stamp set from Verve would "quack him up," just like it says, and the basket would still be Easter-y. I sure wish I had a teeny oval punch to make some Easter eggs to put in the grass. I do have a "Happy Easter" sentiment inside--maybe I'll try to improvise some eggs to put in there. :-D

Supplies
Stamps: Verve--Egg-stra Special, Chicks Rule, Lucky Ducky
Paper: PTI--New Leaf; stash
Ink: Versafine--Vintage Sepia; Embossing Powder--Filigree Clear
Buttons: PTI--New Leaf
Baker's Twine: PTI and The Twinery
Dies: Spellbinders--Classic Circles
Copics: E33, E37, YR23, YR31, G85, T1

Oh! This is SO cute! Love all that baker's twine! Such great colors! I love the paper piecing on the cute little duckie's bill and your shaded him beautifully!

Even without pastelly pink and purple, it's still a very springy card with that nice, bright green - he'll love it!

Oh your card is so adorable (love that duck & basket), but perfect for a little boy. He will love it - unless he wants the duck green, too, lol!
