Easter and Spring

When I think of  Easter and Spring, I think of pastels so making a pretty card is easy. I got my first Little Miss Muffet stamp this past winter and have just now colored her up. Here she is, gathering Easter eggs.


This little image is colored with Copics and she's mounted on a piece of pink glitter paper cut with a Spellbinders die.  My papers are from our local scrapbook store and I don't know who made them. The sentiment and punch are from Stampin' Up. The lace is from a local fabric/lace outlet and that's a button in the middle of the bow. I hung a cute metal yellow enameled butterfly from the lace under the bow. All of my flowers on this card are from Wild Orchid (if you don't own stock in the company, get some since with my purchases alone, you will get dividends). I glittered every flower with Aleen's tacky glue and Denami Design glitter (being a crow in a former life...I love shiny and sparkly). I used a Martha Stewart punch for my flowers' leaves and I made my two stick pins. The pink pearls in the corner are from that giant sheet of pink pearls from my BFF Lillian that I've talked about in previous posts that I cherish and will be able to use for a long time!  


I liked making this Spring/Easter card because of the papers and colors. The soft pastels and I get along well and when you see a card with bright colors on my blog, THOSE cards were a real challenge! I wish everyone a wonderful Easter, and if you don't celebrate that holiday, I hope you have a great Spring.

                                                                                Hugs,
                                                                                Gail

  55. Okay, so my comment goes to the BOTTOM of the list, cause I wasn't allowed to peek in on this card, since it was headed to my mailbox as a surprise Easter card. Well, let me tell you, it was worth the wait! The photo hardly does it justice, as the glitter on the flowers is absolutely "sparkling". The stick pins are precious and just all the little details (cute bunny bg paper, charm, daisy buttom, gems, lace -- oooo, it all adds up to a darling creation!! SO happy that it landed in my mailbox today and I'll enjoy it for a loooooooong time!! It's sitting right beside my computer and winking at me right now. Bunny hugs to you, Gail, and happy, happy Easter !! May all your eggs be chocolate ones !!
