Hiya Crafty Friends and Bloggers, first of all ''Happy Easter'' to you all, secondly, I hope that the Easter Bunny has been good to you and that you are all having a lovely time this Easter weekend!! So far I have had one Easter egg, a lovely Thornton's one from my eldest son... mmmm yummy! Wonder how many more I'll get?.... Anyways, I'm here sharing with you my latest make for Julia Spiri using the fabulous Hat Collection ...Which  is very fitting for today!

Other flowers, A3 pink card, white pearlised card,  gems, pearls and peel offs - From my stash

First of all took an A3 pink card and to make into a concertina card, I scored at 14cm intervals using my 'Hougie' board. Folding, then cutting at 14cm making two 3 page cards. I joined together creating a 5 page card. I cut the white pearlised card 5 times using Sue Wilson die, applying them to the pages. For the front I added flowers, banners etc. I printed, coloured and cut out the four images, edged with mica powder, then layered onto the remaining pages. I finished off by decorating with flowers, brads and gems.
