OWH Mid Week Throwdown ~ Easter Cards

The MWT comes up every Wednesday and these cards were created with last week's challenge ~ Easter cards! 

For this card, I used the Cricut - Create A Critter 2 cartridge for the chocolate bunny & Tulip. The face on the flower is a Peachy Keen Everyday Character stamp & the sentiment is from the Cards TV Easter Punnies stamp set. I used a Fiskars punch for the clouds and a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the swirls. The egg is a wooden stamp with no label, colored with Copics. The green paper is embossed with flowers and I used Martha Stewart scissors along the top to create the grass.
Speaking of Cardz TV stamps ~ I have been watching Miss Mary's tutorials on YouTube and finally decided to try some of her oh-so-cute stamp sets.

OWH Sketch 207 ~

I spent 2 days re-organizing my craft room, going through my scraps getting rid of bits and pieces I was hoarding! So...when the new sketch came out this week, I couldn't wait to get started! I found these cute little stickers at the dollar store.

I made the resolution to learn how to take better photos so they would be true to color. I actually removed a book from the shelf which has rested there for proooobably 4 years! Step 1 complete....yay me! LOL  
I skimmed through it last night and learned a little bit about Aperture and the F stop. I took a quit shot this morning using the aforementioned knowledge. I like the exposure, the background is clean but the card seems to be warped. I assume that I had the camera too close to the card. Will keep trying and hopefully by the end of the year, I will be taking beautiful pictures. If you have any suggestions, websites, books, etc....feel free to share them below! 
Hope you have a crafty day :-)
