Happy Easter!

Edited to add: This card was selected as the winner for the ColourQ Challenge 81... Thanks, Arielle and design team! I will wear my crown with pride:)





It's a dreary, rainy day here...so what better day to get back in my office to create an Easter card! I used that darling new set from the Occasions Mini called Easter Blossoms. Isn't this silhouette image the sweetest? It reminds me of when I was a little girl all dressed up for Easter Sunday!

What do you think of these sweet little Vintage Flower Adornments? This was also my first attempt at the Scrunched Seam Binding bow... I definately need some more practice with scrunching and tying them:)



I combined some awesome challenges for my card today... Arielle's ColourQ Challenge #81...



The Shabby Tea Room #58 Inspiration Challenge using pastels and stripes and...



the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 137. This card also fits the bill for the Splitcoaststampers WT319 using OVALS and the Crazy4Challenges 84 to create an Easter card.



Thanks for stopping in! Happy Easter!

Paper: Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White CS, variety DSP
