Good Sunday morning everyone and HAPPY EASTER! What a wonderful day today is!! I love Easter and what it truly means! And for me it means victory over death! What a great thing to celebrate! We will be celebrating with family and of course the Easter bunny has to come and bring a little something along with hiding a few eggs. Even my 13 year old is looking forward to that - lol! My sister-in-law says you are never to old to hunt for eggs! I have to agree with her. My son said that as you get older you can get more creative with the hiding spots!! Hmmm... I feel a challenge coming on - lol! 

Today's card was inspired by the sketch challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch. And since I don't have any Easter stamps (sad, I know), I tried my best with what I had. On a card base of Primrose Petals I stamped the swirl stamp from Everything Eleanor in Primrose Petals. Then I layered a strip of designer paper from the Tea for Two dsp pack that has the end flagged. I rounded the two bottom corners of a piece of Basic Grey and adhered that to the card. On Very Vanilla I stamped the label in So Saffron and cut it out. I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Basic Grey and added three mini brads. This is popped up onto the card. Then I stamped the flower twice onto Very Vanilla in Primrose Petals and cut them out. One flower is adhered flat and the other is popped up. And there is my Easter card! May you all have a very blessed Easter! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!!

  1. Oh I love that tone on tone stamping of the flourish - it's so elegant! What a clever idea! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  2. I love that die cut and how elegantly it frames the flowers and sentiment! Thanks for joining us at CAS(E) this Sketch!
