Allsorts 461 and Papercrafters' Linky Party 9

Happy Saturday and thanks so much for visiting. It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and as always my Satuday post also includes a new linky for Papercrafter's Linky Party. Don't forget you can share anything papercrafts with the linky tool below (new or recently made). I can't wait to see what you've been up to in the craft room!

At Allsorts challenge this week, Wendy chose the theme of "New Beginnings". First thing that always comes to my mind for this theme is a new baby card, but I needed another Easter card and the Easter holiday is a new beginning, so that is what I made. By the way, I shared another Easter card made with this set on Wednesday, if you'd like to see that card just click here.


My card is clean and simple inspired by a recent sketch from MFT (but I'm too late to link up there). The cute spring chick is from Penny Black's set Chick to Chick, sentiments and little bee are part of the set. I stamped on xpress it blending card and used copic colors for coloring. It's been then cut out using my Cutterbee scissors (which are perfect for detail cutting) to add to my card design. I inked all the white edges using Tumbled Glass distress ink. The outer white card stock was cut using Avery Elle's Wonky Stitches Die set. Some Burlap TwineWink of Stella  and a little prima flower finishes off the card. 

We  have two wonderful prizes to give away this week at Allsorts - a prize by DigiStamp Boutique and a stamp set from the Allsorts stash of prizes. Come join us for a chance to win!

Jenny shared this beautiful shaker card. I love the color combo she used here! I think the gold looks gorgeous with the indigo and then surrounded by all white.
