Silver Easter

Hello Monday! And guess what? I made a card! Oh yes I did! And to keep things nice and consistent, I made an Easter card. We're under 40 days away and I really don't want a repetition of  Christmas 2012. No sireee. Easter 2013 is going to be a calm and organised affair. Continuing my quest for serenity, here's another non-trad Easter offering, sung to the tune of my favourite Monday challenge.

The patterned papers are from First Edition's "Isabel" 8x8 pad.

That pot of flowers is from WMS Spring Basket set. The circles were cut with Spellbinder dies, I arranged them and then stamped the image with Memento Rich Cocoa so it falls in 2 of the larger circles. Then I coloured it with SN markers  BT1, BT2, BT4.   On the smallest circle I stamped a greeting from the same stamp set. You will note that my flowers are kinda hovering above the pot... that is what happens when you don't use your glasses! Shove the ol' vanity aside and put the darn things on before doing detailed work.  

For embellies I have silver card candis and silver ribbon.  Silver is so not an Easter colour....I never really understood that. I'm taking a stand here. Let's put an end to seasonal discrimination... it's just plain wrong! 

For sparkle and shine, I've got Crystal Stickles on the petals and Kuretake in Silver and bling to highlight the centres.  The background paper is also textured and has shimmery stuff.  

The inside.... plenty of room for my Pascal pondering! 

You've probably already guessed that the sketch is from MojoMonday #281. For colours and inspiration I turned to The Shabby Tea Room #154 "A Silver Lining"Crafty Cardmakers #85 "Blooming Images"Ooh La La Creations #124 "Sparkle and Shine"; Pretty Little Ribbon Shop #19 "Anything Goes" and Paper Playtime #4 "Sentiment Stamp".

So there you have it! Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to see to our dinner and I hope you see you tomorrow for Tuesday Throwdown.'s going to be a fun challenge... you'll see!
