Easter Thank You Card

Yesterday K was pleasantly surprised to receive an Easter card from his grandfather in the mail. He absolutely LOVES getting mail. It was even better when he opened it to find a gift card inside. So, we needed a thank you card. I combined three challenges for this card, Card Patterns CP Sketch #9 (which I had to modify slightly because of the size of the eggs), Our Creative Corner OCC Challenge (Use your favorite Easter stamp) and the inaugural Color Chef Challenge. I used all CTMH products for this card. Cardstock colors are Sweet Leaf, Breeze (unfortunately now retired) and White Daisy. Sweet Leaf ricrac ribbon is from the Designer Ricrac Collection, stamps sets used are For Every Occasion and Easter Eggs. Inks used are Sweet Leaf and Breeze. Tools used were Marvy Uchida punches (for the scalloped ovals) and CM corner rounder (probably one of the first two scrapbooking tools I ever owned, so it is pushing twelve years old). I sincerely hope that this doesn't just end up in a trash can. But, I'm sure K will write an adorable thank you that his grandfather will want to keep.
