A Colorful Easter!

This is Easter week, and our house becomes the hub for our 5 children and
11 grandchildren.
It's a happy time of opening up our home for not just family but
friends too!
The Card Concept, one of my favorite challenges,
gave us this inspiration, and it just reminded me of our nest,
with the 5 eggs!

All of the designers at the Card Concept inspire, 
but I'm always drawn to layers and patterns, and perfectly placed images.
Laura Jane's beautiful birthday card, came under Freestyle Collage style,
and because I always love her creations, I went with that one!

This card, together with a coloring book and pencils goes to the granddaughter of a friend, 
who will spend Easter in the hospital.

The nest and eggs are Memory Box
PTI: Songbirds stamps and dies
Pretty Frame Die
Quilter's Tag banner die
Flowers and vines from:Paper Clippings: Happy Day
Inks: Winter Wisteria, Stormy Sea, Hibiscus Burst, Fine Linen,
Ranger: Distress Picked Raspberry, Encore: Silver
BG: Stampers Annonymous Woodgrain (huge woodblock rubber stamp)
