CAS Easter Tilda Shaving Cream Technique & Blog Candy

Good morning everyone and yes I am back home from my short time off. Since I just got back, I was so busy doing laundry. Can't believe that I still have OMG over 300+ emails to go through. Therefore, if I haven't come to visit your blog yet, I will eventually in the next few days/weeks as I will be doing some emails catch up after work tomorrow.

I can't believe that March is ending so soon and April is coming up in just a few days. That means Easter is coming up just weeks away. Besides sharing my card today, I also put a mini blog candy for a winner to grab. Please scroll down for details. I will have more blog candy coming up, so please stay tune.

Today's card I used the one of the older Bunny Tilda image I got a while ago from Magnolia-licious. Basically, this is a card I made with the shaving cream technique. I used up all my husband's left over shaving cream and did a background with glossy paper. On the background piece, I also stamps some flower images on that glossy paper.

I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Creative Cowgirls Challenge - Spring/Easter
Just Magnolia Week #99 - Bingo (Gems, Flowers, Ribbon)
CI Paint Challenge - Flowers
Crafts and Me Challenge #27 - Anything goes
Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge - Stitching
Crafty Creations Challenge #11 - In stitches
A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #145 - Easter

Here is my finished card

(1) Become a follower of my blog
(2) spread this blog candy by copy and display the above blog candy picture on your blog.

Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you soon :o) Don't for get to link your blog for my mini blog candy and good luck.
