Happy Monday! I am back after a long weekend getaway with my sis to the Outer Banks! We had a blast and shopped til we dropped! WooHoo! Fun times! Anyway, I got up bright and early and all rested this morning to head to my craft room for some crafty time. This card is for a couple of challenges. It is for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge to make an Easter card. You still have a few days left to enter to be eligible for a $15 ODBD gift certificate. Also, I am playing along with Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Sketch7.
For my card I am using the newly release set Bird Borders & Corners, along with The Lord Has Risen, and Butterfly single stamp and die. I am using some Prima Madeline designer paper for the background and decided to use the Bird Borders & Corners to coordinate with the designer paper. I wanted to go with some warmer tones for this Easter card. I stamped these images directly to the Prima ruled designer paper that comes in the set. I stamped the border along the bottom in ranger stormy sky. I then added some of the sprigs in the set using only the vintage photo ink. The larger bird image I used in the top right corner mixing some stormy sky and vintage inks to stamp that look. I stamped my butterfly with momento tuxedo black and colored with Copics BG10, BG11, BG72, BG75. I used my glue pen to add some sparkle to the butterfly. I finished with a crinkle ribbon bow, button, gold cording, and goldtone cross charm.
I am playing in a few other blog challenges.
