Happy Sunday Morning!! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend!! The sun is already shining!! It definitely does not feel like spring here but it looks like it! It is 30 degrees here! Still a little cold! I will definitely take the sunshine though! It is funny how a little sunshine can alter your mood and give you some ambition. Since I am in such a springy mood, my cards are starting to look more springy too.




The card I would like to share with you today is an Easter card that I made using SC220.




At first I was a little skeptical about the colors I used but as I went along I love the So Saffron and Pink together. I am trying to stay out of a color rutt where all I use is pinks, browns, blues, purples, and greens so I decided it would be fun to make a more yellowy card. Usually not a yellow type person but I am happy with how this one turned out. Of course, I use my fave Designer paper which retired from SU (Parisian Summer). I should have hoarded more. LOL! the stamp I used is from Penny Black and is called Penny Black Easter Egg Hunt. I stamped it on WC paper and watercolored it with my markers and ink refills. It is a layered image for a 3D look. I have really enjoyed looking at cards with more texture so I too have been making more textured cards. I think the dry embossing, ribbon, crocheted flowers and felt flowers do that. The yummy pink stiched satin May Arts ribbon is from the Little Ribbon Shop on Ebay. The crocheted flowers and handmade with thread you would use for a doiley. I layered them with some Fusion Too flowers from SU and So Saffron Brads. The leaves are a MS punch. I finished the card with one of my MS border punches so the card didn't look so square. Of course, I couldn't have a card without bling! Lol! I added the pearls to the bottom for some elegance. These pearls are Hero Arts pearls and are available here.



I hope you have enjoyed today's post! Thanks as always for your comments!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
