April Challenge at Tiffany Doodles

It's that time, again - Tiffany's April challenge is here.
This month, Tiffany charged us with a color scheme - shades of turquoise.  Those that know me, know that oranges and turquoise aren't my 'go-to' colors, so this was surely a challenge for me, lol.

You'll have until April 21st for this challenge.  Simply go to the Tiffany Doodles blog and link your card at the bottom of April 7th's entry.  Winner's will be determined after April 21st.

The Prizes:
$10 gift certificate for Tiffany Doodles
(for the winner using a Tiffany Doodles digi image)

$5 certificate for Tiffany Doodles for the runner up
(no matter what stamp/image is used)

Make sure you head over to Tiffany Doodles and take a look at what she has to offer - you'll love what you see.
In the meantime - here's what I created ...
I actually used 3 different images/sets for this one - Easter Egg 1, Easter Egg 2 and one of the chicks and sentiment from Cheery Chicks.  All of the images were colored with Copics.  On the polka dotted egg, after coloring, I used my colorless blender to pull some of the color off of the dots before I added some diamond Stickles.  Added the same Stickles to the striped egg and for 'faux brads' on the sentiment panel. 
The background is simply Copic grass with some Stampin Up's bashful blue sponged around a scalloped cloud template I made.  Background and sentiment were sponged with turquoise before matting or popping up.  I used some pretty Paper Trey Ink ribbon for this that went well with the color palette.  Designer paper is from DCWV glitter pack.
