Happy Easter

Hi All

I hope you all had a good weekend.

I had a lovely day at the Farnborough craft show on Friday and bought more supplies. Pic at the end of this blog.

For today's card I decided to go with an Easter theme.

 I stamped the Regal Blossom Outer frame  from Creative Expressions and  coloured the flowers in with my colouring pencils
 I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the inner die from the Heraldic Square from Sue Wilson.
I cut the largest die from Spellbinders Floral Assortment out of the green card and used the aperture to mount my focal element on. I used a self adhesive sheet on the back and sprinkled it with glitter from my stash, so it just peaks out from behind the stamp.
 The butterfly I made from a Spellbinders die which a snipped into to make look like a butterfly. I added the Graceful Peach gilding  wax to it from Phil Martin.
I then finished the card with a Glue pearl dot in each corner and on the butterfly.
 More supplies added to my ever growing crafty stash.
