Kathy's Lily Pad Palette for March

I had time to make another card last night and had been eyeing Kathy's colour palette challenge over at the Lily Pad and decided to give it a try. Plus, it's being sponsored by Purple Onion Design, do yourself a favour and go and browse around their shop and you will be quite taken in by some of their really fun images.

And for my card I used one by Stephanie Ackerman called "Cracked Egg - Chick".  It's too funny! I hope you like what I made!

Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; Spun Sugar DI
Stamps: POD
Other: Pearls (Hero Arts); Nestabilitie Die

I paper pieced the image with the two different colour cardstocks after stamping the image in black ink and heat embossing.  I also inked the edges of my card with some Spun Sugar distress ink and I really love the subtle softness it added.  For me, finding those three little pearls in my stash was the cherry on the cake.

I think I am going to send this as a surprise card to my niece Megan in South Africa. She won't be expecting it which makes it all the sweeter!

One more sleep and we will be off to Disney!  Natasha can barely contain her excitement, and I am probably not far behind her!  My hubby on the other hand is going to have to work really hard on being patient, he is dreading the queueing, but a saying I learned here in the USA, which is totally appropriate for this adventure, he basically needs to "suck it up"!  Which I am sure he will, even if it is going to be an effort!

Have a wondrous weekend!

Love this darling card, Bren! So glad you found some time before your trip to play along with us at Lily Pad!

Tell your hubby to just watch his daughter's face throughout the trip, and that alone will make it worth while! Have a wonderful time!

This is adorable Brenda. My hubby doesn't like queues or crowds either... so "suck it up" sounds just right. Enjoy the trip
