Hi there, blog-friends! It's been a crazy couple of days here at the commune. Don't know what it is but all the quadrupeds have been restless... still are. Maybe it's the sudden increase in temperature or maybe their excited about Easter, just as I am. Speaking of which, let me show you my latest Easter card. This one is based on Card Patterns sketch #158. I struggled a bit (a fair bit!) with this sketch. It refused to come together. I had plans, big plans but it was being utterly obnoxious (yep, when in doubt blame the card). In the end, I let it be ...
|The patterned papers are from HOTP's "Soft Nostalgia" collection.|
|The stamps are from Verve's "Everlasting Life" set. I love every stamp in this set. As always, I used Memento Tuxedo Black to stamp, then cut it out with Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles and layered it on Spellbinders Fleur-de-Lis Rectangles.|
|I cut the sentiment with a die from Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio set. The cross and swirls got their colour from Promarkers.|
|And for that doily bit at the botton I used Nellie Snellen's Circle Dots die. A sheer ribbon bow and a red mulberry paper rose complete this card.|
Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back real soon with another Easter offering. Until then ...
