Some Easter Cards

Thought I best get cracking on more Easter cards as we have Jack's birthday and party the week before. I wanted to make some simple and pretty cards so after much browsing I purchased a pack of Doodlebug Easter papers from The Glitter Pot, 12 sheets od 12x12 paper for £4 and the pack includes a set of alphabet tiles as well so thought it was a bit of a 'must have' bargain :-)

So here are the results of using my Doodlebug papers, hope you like them! I made my own card blanks as I wanted them to be sort of A6 size but open at the bottom if that makes any sense ;-)

I would like to enter the following card into the Cupcake Craft Challenge 80, Round and Round. I have included circles everywhere - they are on the DP, I used circle punches, gems, alphabet tiles and even decorated the inside of my card too which I very rarely do.

Inside of card...

Cardstock - Coredinations
Paper & alphabet tiles - Doodlebug from The Glitter Pot
Chick image and journal circle inside card - gorgeous freebies from Pink Peticoat
Gems - from stash
Ribbon - from stash

Here's another very similar card - had to use the cute chick again!!!
Materials used same as before

Next I tried a different colour card base, how pink is this!!! I would like to enter this very pink and girly card into the following challenges:

Hope I've fulfilled the 'Girly/Pink' brief sufficiently!
Materials as above with the exception of...
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics from Dies To Die For
Flowers - Prima eline from The Glitter Pot
Brad - from stash

Here's another using my lovely Elzybells Chick stamp...
And the last one of my Easter cards...
