Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge... on Saturday

Hello again and another happy Friday (Saturday) to you.  This is my second post today (after being totally frustrated by blogspot not responding properly and not letting me post or view anything blogspot!!!).  If you're looking for my Stamp Something post, please scroll down.

Welcome to my little portion of the Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge.  This week's challenge is Easter.  Just in the nick of time!!  Do you think there will be a whole lot of Easter challenges this week???  : )  I bet so too!  There are just soooo many cute Easter images out there!

I chose to use this cute little FREEBIE digi from Bee Crafty.  Don't ya just LOVE the freebies???  Free is FUN!  ; )  Anyhoo this card was quite a work in progress (WIP).  The first version was pretty danged plain (boring).  That's the one you see on the challenge blog.  I decided I just couldn't leave it that way so it was time to add more embellishments!!!  For the second version, I added the different sized pearls on the top and bottom.  Better, but not good enough.  Third version, added the hippity hop sentiment near the top and blushed up their little cheeks a bit.  Much better {nodding}, but still needs something.  That something was stickles on the chickie's comb, bunny's inner ears, tummy and footpads, and the two little flowers.  There much better!!  {Nodding AND smiling!!}  : )

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Charm Barn.  They are offering a $15 gift certificate to one lucky winner.  To top off our cards off, they kindly provided the DT members a couple of adorable Easter charms to use.  I chose to use the bunny charm on my card.  On the other DT cards, you'll see the Easter egg they also gave us.  Aren't they wonderful?  Thanks Charm Barn!!!
