Happy Easter Card 2017

Happy Easter!  It has been a very warm day today with record temperatures.  It will be a bit more seasonable tomorrow and the next couple of days.  We had a busy day visiting relatives.  I am now looking for some relaxing time this evening.

My card today features papers from Pion Design's Easter Greetings collection.  I love the soft colors and sweet images in this collection.


The base was made from lavender colored cardstock.  The top scalloped edge was made with a Martha Stewart punch.  All paper edges were inked and distressed.  I added some lace trim to peek out from under the layers.  The image was cut with a Tim Holtz stitched oval die and then framed with a Spellbinders die.  The Recollections flowers were given a coat of gesso to soften the color.  Vintage buttons and seam binding were added for a more shabby feel.  The banner sentiment was cut from the papers.  I gave a touch of yellow Stickles to the flowers and the tiny chick.


I decided to dress up the envelope a bit by placing a decorative lace/pearl trim down the side with an egg shape cut from the papers.  The edge of the egg was inked and distressed.  I added a bit of purple flower trim to the egg for decoration.


Well, that's about it for me today.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a wonderful week ahead.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by.  I do appreciate your sweet comments.
