Hello All! I don't know why it seems like Friday today but it does. It must be because Scott is off from work tomorrow and I won't be homeschooling the girls. I decided since the schools are off tomorrow and my husband is home that we could all use a break. It is suppose to rain all weekend but we will make the most of our long weekend anyway.

The card I am sharing with you today is one that I made for Monday's TLC215 to make a pot pocket card. It was a lot of fun with minimal stamping. I decided to make it an Easter Card for the OCCC Challenge as well. The flowers are cut out and dimensionalized using the Autumn Leaves- Pretty Poppies DP. Aren't those flowers so bright and cheerful. The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs- I Am the Way set. The link for making this pocket card is here.The pots is dry embossed using the Sizzix Argyle textured folder. The top of the pot is sprayed with pearl glimmermist although it is hard to see in the picture. The velvet ribbon was a clearance item that I bought from a scrapbooking store that recently closed. It is from Little Shoe Box.
What do you think? I have already sent this card out to a good friend of mine for Easter. I hope she likes it!!
Thanks for stopping by!! I really appreciate your comments!!
