My Sweet Petunia (Misti) with Reverse Confetti Hop

Hey Chickie!
It is time for another hop, and today My Sweet Petunia is hopping with Reverse Confetti
Before I continue I should mention that not only will you see some fabulous cards, we have prizes too.
We will choose two lucky commenter's from the hop to win one of two prizes: a $60.00 shopping spree at My Sweet Petunia or a $60.00 shopping spree at Reverse ConfettiEveryone who comments on all the blog posts will be entered to win. You must leave your comments no later than Sunday, March 25th, at 11:59 PM Central time, and the winners will be announced on Tuesday March 27th, on the Reverse Confetti and My Sweet Petunia blogs.

On to my card. I am using my Mini Misti for this card and the Carton Cuties Stamp and Die Set.

I decided I would use the Chickie stamp for my card. In my Misti I set the stamps up on a piece of left-over card stock, first stamping the egg carton in distress hickory smoke . 
 I then die cut the Chickie and the egg pieces, and die cut them, colouring the egg with yellow and orange markers. The eggs I stamped using archival inks in orange and pink.
 I wanted a frame for my design, so I die cut the piece from co-ordinating cardstock. 
 Then continued with the Chickie and egg I wanted for the inside of my card, along with the sentiment piece for the inside, which is the left-over from making the frame.
I stamped the sentiment on the egg carton using archival purple ink. 
 This is the inside of my card. I just love the colours.
For my second card I used my Original Misti and the Bear Hug Stamp and Die set.

I couldn't make up my mind as to the colours of the bears, so I did one in each colour.
 I used my traditional watercolours to paint the bears above, and
 distress markers and Zig brushes to paint this, along with the bear below, which I did for the inside of my card.

I decided I liked the grey, so that is what I went with.
This is my finished card. I wanted it clean and simple, so I did not even add any sequins!! I did add Wink of Stella to their noses.
Just for you
 And the inside ...
I hope you have enjoyed the cards I made as much as I enjoyed making them. Now on to the rest of the hop. 

You should have arrived here from Tricia's blog, and the next blog you visit will be Deanne's blog.
