I've got to say that Easter has really been sneaking up on me this year. I had to jump start my Easter card stash last week when I realized that it was coming far sooner than I'd thought. And today it hit me that I'll need to start mailing out said Easter card stash on Monday or so. Yikes! So I kicked it in high gear today (in between other tasks) to put together this card:
That beautifully scripted Easter sentiment is from Flourishes' He is Risen set, that lovely Easter lily images is a digital element from the Beautiful Moments digital collection by Carta Bella, the baker's twine is from The Twinery, and the patterned papers are from the Lost & Found: Market Street collection by My Mind's Eye, which I found buried deep in my paper stash. In real-life, the punched label panel on this card coordinates beautifully with the coral colors of the patterned papers, but for some reason it looks all peachy (and clash-y!) in my photo. I'm not sure how that happened!
Well, regardless, I was inspired by a number of terrific challenges in the making of this card, including:
- Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Easter/Spring
- Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #212: Bring On Spring
- Shopping Our Stash Challenge #94: Easter or Spring
- Playing in Paradise #109: add some banners
- Tuesday Morning Sketches #190:
- The Twinery Challenge: It's a Banner Day
I'm so glad you stopped by today! I hope you have great plans for the weekend. I can't wait to get mine started!
Oh, I have the March edition of my Ways With Washi feature going live on Monday. There will be another giveaway involved, so you just may want to plan to come back then ;).
Thanks for the visit!
