Put on Your Easter Bonnet

This is my second post today. Please scroll down if you would like to see the first. This post is for this week's PanPastel UK Challenge, which is "Easter Week." I immediately selected this image from Crafty Individuals as I thought she looked like she was in her Easter Bonnet. She was mounted onto gold metallic paper, and before adding black paper, I blended PanPastels in pinks and yellows onto white card stock and distressed the edges heavily with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. The top portion of the card was layered with a sparkly butterfly paper before adding the matted focal image. Vintage caramel seam binding was wrapped around the bottom of the designer paper and another piece was fashioned into a bow. A bird feather was tucked into the bow. On the bottom portion of the card, "Happy Easter" by Art Declassified and a new born chick by Paper Inspiration were stamped with Black StazOn ink. Embellishments include Vintage buttons, including a vintage fan button highlighted with Ranger Distress Stickles in Scattered Straw. Thanks for stopping by! Best wishes, Yvonne
