Shiny shiny shiny

Good morning all! Did you have a good good Friday? We had a lovely time - I managed a run with my friend Sue in the morning then we all went on an Easter Egg Hunt in nearby Ingleton. Then we chilled out for the afternoon - and took the girls to jujitsu in the evening.  Bliss. Hoping to go off to Rufford Old Hall today and do a gnome hunt! Sounds exciting - I'll let you know if it was!!!!

Todays offerings are down to Hels Sheridan's Shiny challenge over at the sunday stamper and watching Sam Poole on Create and craft last week. There's a card that my mum got for Easter and a tag too.

The card includes two stamps from the new Sheena Douglass range - one stamped onto card that had been coloured using DI Victorian Velvet, spiced marmalade and wild honey. The feather was stamped onto card that I had foiled with winter dawn indigo blu flakes. The flowers were cut using spellbinders dies from paper foiled with Brighton Pier Flakes. This paper was also used for the bird below - he's cut using a red cardinal spellbinder die that Hels was using a few weeks ago. On the tag the background is one of my shaving foam marbing papers that I made last week. The branch and flowers are cut using the spellbinders cherry blossom set.

I'd like to enter these pieces into the following challenges:
