Freshly Made Sketches and SSS Anything Goes

Happy Saturday!  I'm trying to stay positive as yet again we woke to a dusting of snow on the ground and temps in the teens:(

Worked on some Easter projects this week and the first one I'm sharing is a card based on the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches :

I used a new stamp set by Avery Elle called Easter Blessings and some new pp from Lawn Fawn called Let's Polka Mon Amie:

When I saw this Avery Elle image I immediately thought how cute it would look on an egg.  I die cut the egg image from Cricut cart Doodlecharms and the embossed image was colored with a variety of Stampin' Up markers.
Other Materials Used:  Stampin' Up baked brown sugarcs and crisp cantaloupe cs and sequins, My Favorite Things banner die, Papertrey ink white cs

I'm also popping this into the current Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.

I wanted to share the Easter shadow box insert I made at a Stampin'
Up workshop:

The finished piece was mounted on an 8 x 8" piece of Stampin' Up chocolate chip cs and put in an 8 x 8" black shadow box frame.

Hope everyone has a fab weekend!  I'm working today but hope to visit blogs tomorrow:)

What a sweet card with your take on the sketch! Beautiful. We were pretty chilly here in South Georgia today too ~ think it is time for some warmer weather.
