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.
