Easter Wishes

  Happy Monday! I didn't get as much card making done as I had planned over the weekend, but I have lots of ideas scribbled on a piece of paper.  Now where did I place that little piece of paper?
  Today's card is one using Sweet Spring and Scrambled Eggs. I soooo love these two sets. While creating this card I went out of my comfort zone on two elements . One was stamping a background, and the other was coloring with my Copic markers. I played it safe using only small areas to color.



    I knew I wanted to include the little basket  from Sweet Spring in the card. To make it work I decided to fill it with the flowers instead of Easter eggs as I had originally planned.  The flowers are layered as some have double the amount of dimensional squares or none at all.


     Here's an up close shot of the sentiment. Love that oval gingham stamp!


    I am happy with the way the card turned out. Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great day even though it's Monday!

Lovely card, Carol. It's such a bright and springy card. We just had a huge snow storm here last night so it will be a while before we'll see flowers. The next best thing is paper and stamped flowers!!

So nice and pretty. Those two sets go great together, and you did great outside of your comfort zone. You should go there more often!
