Easter wishes!

Hi guys,
We are having gorgeous weather, beautifully warm, well hot actually and I hear so are you lol,

It's Thursday and time for colour create and paper play challenges,
I've used the same card for both as life has been a bit hectic lately lol,

Paperplay's challenge
Is for Easter so anything to do with Easter is fine,

Colour create's challenge
Is mine! and it's for the colours pink, blue and brown
with the optional extra of acetate or cracked glass effects,

Here is the image

I must have been mad to choose this as I've never done cracked glass effects before and with my son's upheaval I had run out of acetate and didn't get chance to buy some more lol,
so here's my attempt!
I've used this gorgeous Magnolia stamp with her little lamb, it's been coloured with copics, but do beware that when you add embossing powder it does change the colours slightly as her hair was more dark on the left to go with the right lol,
as I said it was my first attempt at the cracked glass look but I only had fine embossing powder so needed to use 4 layers instead of one thick one, oh well I'll know for next time,
