Good Morning everyone! I am so excited to see the sun and to know that it will be a sun filled day with warmer temperatures! Yea!!! It also sounds like tomorrow (Easter Sunday) will be just as beautiful! I hope that your Easter weekend will be as blessed!

Today's card is probably one of my most favoritest cards that I have made in awhile! I just love this card and it makes me happy when I look at it! AND... it is so super simple!! The only stamping on this card is the sentiment. I copied this card from the Cards Magazine. The card in the magazine used a discontinued set (and one that I don't have) so I just tweaked it up a bit! I used a Pumpkin Pie base and designer prints paper (the polka dots). The flower is from our new die-cut blooms from the Occasions mini catalog! The package comes with 12 x 12 sheets of flowers that are already cut and all you have to do is punch them out! The four colors are Real Red, Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie. They also come in a wide variety of sizes. I have even read about people using the punched out part (the negative part) to trace the flower onto other colors to cut out. Then you would have blooms in any color you wanted! The center of this flower uses a build-a-brad. I punched out a "dot" from the designer paper and glued it to the build-a-brad. I also used the new Real Red striped ribbon. The olive panel and the flower are each popped up with dimensionals. I hope you like this card as much as I do! Have a great day!
