Happy Easter, dear friends. Hope you had a peaceful day, feasting with family and friends, not forgetting of course, He who made it all possible. We spent most of the weekend in Church ... at least it felt that way! The weather was glorious, perfect spring day, perfect Easter and, for a change, devoid of drama! All limbs intact! Today I have a card to share with you; an Easter card, with a bit of a twist. The sketch came from Sunday Sketch & Stamp #101 and the colour inspiration came from Just Add Ink #112. I know the colours are soft and lovey-dovey etc and would be perfect for your bog standard "I love you" token. But that got me thinking.... Easter is the perfect opportunity to scream out "I love You!" So here it is: my card of Love and Gratitude:
Just Add Ink #112

Sunday Sketch & Stamp #101

The patterned papers are from Papermania's "Confetti" collection.

Few embellishments were called into action: pink satin ribbon, 6 light pink blings and 3 vanilla eyelets. 

The sentiment is from "Everlasting Life" by Verve, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. I couldn't resist using some Liquid Pearls on the pink die cut.   

For the die cuts, I used Spellbinders Label 14 and 23. Sponged the edges with TH's  Vintage Photo and hoisted it all up with foam tape.

 Here's the inside. 

That's my first card this Easter Week. Thanks for stopping by. If you can, swing by Make It Monday #84 for some really cute cards. See you later!
