Hello Spring with Anja

Happy Monday, Anja here with a spring-themed card in pastel colors. I stamped the chick, bunny and butterflies from the Easter Egg Hunt set and colored them with Copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images. For the background, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxide Inks (Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender, Shaded Lilac, Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio).
