I'm Back in the Craft Room!!!

Hello wonderful grandchildren went home (they were here for spring break) so this tired old grandma played a little in the craft room today!!!! I made this card for the Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoast hosted by Anne Ryan to honor Miss Peggy (marilynprestonn).
I sooo love each and every card in Peggy's gallery but since I only had time for one, I chose to case her gorgeous Purple Easter Bunny and Tulips card. I kept the same wonderful layout and some of the same colors but changed the stamps to the cross, flower, and sentiment from Clear Dollar Stamps Jesus Paid it All set. The crosses were stamped with Vesafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear ep. The flowers were colored with copics and the background of the circles were sponged with Almost Amethyst. The pearls and punched butterfly finish it off.
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Jesus Paid it All
Paper: White, Black, Prism Island Mist Light, Basic Grey Wisteria
Ink: Almost Amethyst, Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Pearls, Nestabilities, Copics, Clear Embossing Powder

Cathy (Mutnik) was the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast yesterday!!! She has such a fabulous gallery and I am sooo in awe of her talents!!! I made a feeble attempt to case her CC223 - CAS19-....loving ewe..I card. I kept the same basic layout and colors but changed the stamps to the bunny image from Clear Dollar Stamps Circle Chit Chat. I popped up two of the bunnies and added hop doodles instead of doodling around the circle....I also added a scalloped Nesties frame. Don't look too close at my three little round circles...I used an eraser on the end of a pencil but they look kinda pitiful...that's why you only see three of them...LOL!!!

Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Circle Chit Chat
Paper: White, Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart
Ink: Baja Breeze, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose
Accessories: Nestabilities, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder Punch
Thanks for visiting...have a great day!!!!
