Color Me Spring

Happy Saturday, peeps!  The Verve Diva Dare is wrapping up this weekend, so I thought I'd take this chance to pop in with my take on this month's challenge... Color Me Spring!  You have until Sunday night {4/10} to play along, whether you're taking the dare or just commenting on all the fabulous Diva creations.

Color was the name of the game for this dare, and as I pulled out my colors I couldn't help but think of a fabulous new line of sorbet I saw at the grocery store the other day...  mango, strawberry, lime and lemon.  Yum!  So along with the Egg-stra Special set I pulled out some cardstock that hasn't seen the light of day in a while... apricot appeal, gable green, pink pirouette, barely banana and soft sky.  Sorry my photo is a little dark.  My camera settings got bumped and I can think of at least a hundred things I'd rather do this morning than retake the photo with the correct settings.  {grin}  So for a moment, just imagine brighter whites, softer colors and sparkling butterflies and eggs.

I didn't really have a plan, just started stamping eggs on the different colors of cardstock, accenting with Copic markers and layering with my just hatched chick and some green grass.  The cardstock pieces are embossed with a new Sizzix embossing folder and I just layered them together similarly to how they fell on my desk, adding a little hand-doodled dotted border and stamping a couple eggs in the white space in the bottom corner.

The sentiment is cut with the Charming Oval Die and I accented with some rhinestones in pink, blue and green.  I finished off with some sparkly butterflies, polka dot ribbon and a couple Trinket Pins from Vio's Handmade.

That's all for me today!  I've got tons to do before next Friday's release.  Hope you have a fantastic weekend, and don't forget to play along in the Diva Dare!
