Quirky Crafts 2011: Challenge 8 - Sparkly, Punchy Easter and/or Spring

Welcome to Challenge 8 here at Quirky Crafts which is sponsored by the lovely Digital Delights.
Digital Delights are creators of some gorgeous digital stamps. The winner of the Design Team vote will be able to chose 3 digital images of their own choice from this fabulous collection. The DT were given the opportunity to work with some of these images and they are lovely.

Challenge 8 was set by me, Caro, and as I am sat here looking out of the window at Spring flowers in the garden, with blossom on some of the trees and Easter is just round the corner the challenge is...
An Easter or Spring creation which must include something sparkly (gems, glitter etc) and use at least one punch.

Rules for entering our challenges are in the side bar and we reserve the right to remove any links that don't follow the rules, although we will tell you so you can enter something else. Don't forget, we love to see all your cards but we also accept anything crafty as long as it fits into the current challenge. That includes ATC's, Altered Art, Fat Pages, Scrap Book Pages, Magic boxes, Tags, Book Marks, in fact anything crafty you can think of! Just a reminder that our challenges go live on Sunday evening and close on the next Friday but one, so this challenge is open until Friday 22nd April (Good Friday). Please pop back then to vote for your favourite cards. Voting remains open until the end of Saturday. Have fun and we look forward to seeing your Sparkly, Punchy Easter or Spring creations.

Here are a few creations by our Design Team to give you inspiration

First Guest Designer Alethea used the Easter Dumpling image and Easter Sentiment from our sponsor, this is so cute.

Second Guest Designer Jacqui, who made this very pretty card at very short notice also used Easter Dumpling and Easter Scroll.

Third Guest Designer Leanne also chose Easter Dumpling and Easter Scroll, but used a totally different technique for her egg shaped card, and you can read about on her blog.

Diane has made a chocolate bar wrap using
Barnaby Bunny

Lyn has also used Barnaby Bunny and Happy Easter Scroll from our sponsor,
with freebie papers.
