And by the way, the colors used were from the Color Throwdown 185 challenge (Lucky Limeade, Basic Gray, Regal Rose, Basic Black), and since this is for Easter I'm also submitting it for the Just Add Ink #111 challenge (Just Add Easter).
Okay, I'll walk you through the items. First, the card:
I didn't have Lucky Limeade so I used Certainly Celery, which seems close. The polka dot paper is from Bo Bunny, and the flower stamps are from the WMS French Country set. I colored them with Copic markers. The sentiment was created on my computer. The die cuts were made using Quickutz Nesting Frame 3 set.
Next, the little boxes filled with Jordan almonds that I decorated to look like little chickies (got the idea here):
I made the box from white card stock, stamped and colored with Copics, and inserted a clear window so you could see the little critters. They are resting on a bed of polyester quilt batting--I hope that helps them weather the journey!
Then, I made some jelly bean Easter bark using this recipe, and packaged them up in clear bags with wide curling ribbon and labels (text was printed on the computer):
Finally, I realize the carrots don't really go with all this cute pink and green, but I wanted to include something at least marginally healthy in the package, so I got some dried apricots and put them in bags that were made in a triangular shape using a heat sealer:
Of course they would look better with cheese puffs or something like that, but oh well...
Well, that's all from me--I had fun putting it all together but with all the stops and starts and interruptions I thought I'd never finish!
See ya (oh, and watch your back tomorrow--April 1!)
