Easter Alleluia

Another Easter card for my stash:


I'm playing along again with the Colorful Creations challenge over at Flourishes for their March stamp release week and used their He is Risen set. It's a color challenge:



I'm not sure how I feel about the very traditional feel of this design, but I know one of my aunts will love it. I added a ruffle around the oval panel with washi tape. Talk about easy! Looks great but won't add much bulk when I stuff the envelope with this card. That diecut label I used for the sentiment came from my very dear and sweet friend Colleen. Thanks so much, Col!

I'm also playing along with the Washi Tape Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

Wishing you a fabulous day,
Emily

I really like how the ruffled washi tape looks Emily. This is lovely! I love the pop of yellow in the lilies with all the blue, makes for really nice contrast. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Flourishes!

I have GOT to try making a washi ruffle! This looks amazing & would be a lot lighter than ribbon :) Your colouring is incredible on the lilies - anyone would love to get this beauty :)
