Inspired by nature!

Happy Easter everyone!  I hope you get all the chocolate bunnies you can eat!  I'm not allowed chocolate at the moment so I am going to save all mine up and eat them in one go once my restricted diet (to lower my blood pressure) is finished - YUM!

Onto today's card, the challenge over at The Paper Shelter is 'inspired by nature' and this is what I created....


I was inspired by the yummy papers by Prima's So Cute paper pad (bought mine from Quixotic Paperie here) and I love that cutie sitting on the fence, don't you?!  She is from The Paper Shelter and is called Sophie in the Country - I am lovin' this brand which I only found recently!  Not that I need help falling in love with craft stash!

I am entering this card - once again! - into That's Krafty Thursday challenge to use kraft cardstock!  This is Jeanie's 50th challenge so it would be great if you could join in so she can reach at least 50 entries!!  Come on, you know you want to play with your kraft cardstock!!

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Absolutely beautiful card.
Didn't know chocolate affected blood pressure, I have hight blood pressure but eat very little chocolate, which is a good job really as I didn't get any eggs.
Can't remember if you work but I gave up working 15 months ago and my blood pressure is well good now so eat chocolate but give up work!!!
