Easter Joy

There is a new CAS game up at AAA Cards Challenge Blog with a theme of "Shiny Spring" - a Spring inspired card with the optional twist of the addition of a shiny element.

Happy Little Stampers is sponsoring the challenge with a $20 gift certificate from the Happy Little Stampers Store, for the winner!

Trina Pham of My Crafting Closet is Guest Designer for this challenge. Trina has a wonderful style, and her coloring is awesome! You will surely be inspired by her creations when you check out her blog.

Here is my take:

I love Verve's retired Easter Joy set. It comes out every year at this time - I never grow tired of it. I embossed it in gold (my shiny twist) and colored it with Zigs.

Please check out Challenge #87 on the AAA Cards Challenge blog, see what Trina and the DT has created to enliven your imagination. Create a spring-themed card, link up, and play! Don't forget that AAA Challenges are all cards, and all CAS! for the AAA definition of CAS, click HERE.

I'm also playing at:

The centerpiece in the photo really reminded me of the image I used on my card.
