|The DPs are by Stampin Up! and these are from way back when.|
|I don't have Calypso Coral so I'm using Memento Morocco ink instead... a close enough match, I think. The sentiment is from WMS Compact Sentiments 2, cut and layered with Spellbinders Standard Circle and Scalloped Circle dies.|
|I ran the background solid colour CS through the BigShot with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and jazzed up the card with ribbon, twine, bling and a paper doily.|
|Here's the inside.|
Ideas and inspiration for this card came from MojoMonday #287 - sketch; Whoopsi Daisy Challenge "Bling"; The Ribbon Reel Challenge #50 "Mix and Match" - 1 solid paper, 2 patterned papers, ribbon and twine; Come and Get It Challenge "Colours - Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight" and Simon Says Stamp "A Very Strict Challenge - AG!"
Thank you so much for stopping by, but before I go I want share one more Easter delight with you - Hot Cross Buns! I made them yesterday and here they are fresh out of the oven balancing precariously on a mixing bowl and a mug of hot cappuccino! Of course I have a cooling rack but why bother using it, right?! These buns were delish ... soft, pillowy not too cinnamon-y. I gave it a mediterranean twist by throwing in some pine nuts. Oh yum! I urge you to make your own because they are waaaay superior to the commercial versions. These disappeared at a blink of an eye...my only regret: halving the recipe.
