It's time for another challenge over at Digi Darla's Challenges, and this week's theme is Challenge #54 - Easter/Spring. That means either an Easter card or simply one that conveys springtime, for which I'm sure most of us are more than ready. One winner will receive 5 Digi Darla images, and any entries using a DD image get entered into a SECOND drawing for 3 images, so you could conceivably win 8, yes, eight Digi Darla images!
If you use a Digi Darla image, make sure after you link up to add DD with your name so we won't miss you!
Today's card features the Digi Darla stamp "Easter Eggs," which you can find here.
I decided to do something a little different and color them with various colors of Creative Inspirations paints. Check out the shimmer. I LOVE using these paints! I used some of the colors straight and mixed others.
I paper pieced most of the flowers and one of the eggs and used Copics on the remaining (purple) flower, grass and ground. Tiny pearls form the flower centers. It's hard to tell, but I used patterned paper for two of the flowers and colored toward the centers with Copics for a little added depth.

I colored the Candi's myself, using two colors of CI Paints as I didn't have any lavender brads.
