Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Bright Colours

This fortnight, the theme for our challenge over at Oldie but a Goodie is:

'Bright Colours'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Iva Nova Chest

I've used some brightly coloured papers (from the 'Hippity Hoppity' pad by We R Memory Keepers), and a Penny Black stamp (called 'Spring Chick') to make my first Easter card of the year. I doodled some borders, using a black gel pen, added a sentiment (also a Penny Black stamp), and some little flowers (from Poppicrafts...which closed several years ago, so that shows you how long they've been residing in my stash!) held in place with some teeny tiny BasicGrey brads.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
