The East Wind April 1st Challenge.

Good morning everyone!! I hope everyone had a wonderful March! First I wanted to draw for my birthday giveaway. So here is the winner drawn by Mr. Random :)

Congratulations!!!  Please send me an email with your address to icepanthress at gmail dot com. I'll get your little package right out to you!! It is already packed up ... just waiting on an address.  And thank you to EVERYONE that joined in :)  You all are the BEST!! Thank you for all of the amazing birthday wishes!

Can you believe that March is gone? We are on April 1st and today is the start of a new challenge at The East Wind!!!  We have our April Freebie and the theme is to Use A Sentiment.  Here is what I came up with:

I am always so disappointed when I try to go more simple LOL  I just don't think I pull that off. But I gave it a shot. I used several different ribbons, netting that you use to make a tutu that I got from the fabric store.. this one is pink. I have a lot of colors.. and how fun is that!  I added the layered flower with the pearl in the middle.. a little netting in the middle of layered flower as well. I colored the awesome image with Copic and layered just a bit of it. I layered the bunny, the basket and the ribbon around her head. The last thing was the stamped sentiment.

  • Pink Ribbon and Pajamas:  RV11, RV32, RV34
  • Blue on Pajamas and Socks: B0000, B00, B01
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
