Happy Easter-Spring

Hello Friends and Visitors! I made this card last weekend for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest. There are three categories you can enter and some outstanding prizes. The voting will take place by Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group members which is so fabulous.

My entry for category #1 is an Easter card with lots of flowery colors.

I love this color combo. The DPs are from TPC Studio which I just got at Archiver’s.

My sweet little Tilda with her Bunny was colored with Copics in Blue Greens and Orange(YRs). For her Bunny I used the C0 series. I added Stickles to the bow of Tilda’s hat and Glossy Accents to her shoes and I gave bunny a white fluffy tail with some flock. I used my Spellbinders Circle die for the background and embossed the edge then I added some pumpkin colored ink with a sponge applicator around the embossing.

I machine stitched the DP panels and added Marianne Designs doily and Tilda Lace die cuts. The lace ribbon trim matched perfectly with my DPs which are both from Archiver’s. My flowers are from WOC and Recollections. The blue flowers I got at Hobby Lobby originally in white so I sprayed them with Turquoise Glimmer Mist to match my color scheme. I added some leaves under my flowers with my Nellie Snellen punch and I finished off the front with some pearls and a Spellbinders label die for my Happy Easter sentiment. Then I gave the label a coat of Stickles in eucalyptus and orange.

For the inside of my card I added elements from the front with a matted blank circle ready for a personal sentiment. Then I finished it off with a simple ribbon tie.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I did creating it. I’m working on the other two categories for this challenge so I hope to see you again soon. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugz,
