Less is More-week 166-colour

Hi everyone and here we are with rather more seasonal type April weather, wet and windy!! Good excuse to stay in and craft and I'm very relaxed having had a luxurious pedicure at home, which is great as you don't have to worry about putting shoes on :)
Anyway time for another challenge over at Less is More and this is what it is:

The colour challenge this month is
A Touch Of Turquoise
Please remember to keep your submissions 
Rather a lot of layers have been creeping into submissions... so please don't forget to leave that 
in evidence.

I have some lovely Easter images on a CA digi kit and thought I'd use that to create an Easter card which also fits in with the Make my Monday challenge, come and see:

I used an Anna Griffin embossing border and added a little ink to the raised pattern and also to the edges of the egg and banner which is popped up with pinflair.

We are off to Portsmouth on Thursday for a wedding, my DIL Lara's brother is getting married on friday. This is the first of 3 weddings this year as my friend has both her daughters getting married, one in May and the other in August! Great excuse for a couple of new outfits :)
