PP386 Happy Easter

Happy Palm Sunday, everyone!  What a blessing it is to think about this time of resurrection!  We're having a brunch at church today, so it's a double blessing!!  Busy but fun.  And I was busy in my craft room this weekend, creating my Paper Players' card for Claire's sketch...LOVE this one!

I am behind on making my Easter cards, and since there were lots of layers on Claire's sketch, I went for lots of different pastel-hued papers!!!  I certainly have enough of them, but many of them in the colors that I wanted were more vintage-styled, so I had to really search to find these!

There's really not much stamping on this card!  I started with my wreath, which is actually a Christmas wreath from my recently-purchased Lawn Fawn set, Peace Joy Love.  It's really just a little semi-circle stamp, so I inked it up three times in Pear Pizzazz ink and matched the ends to make a circle shape, then diecut it with a Stitched Shapes Framelit.   I added some Crisp Cantaloup flowers with pearl centers, and a little diecut bunny with a purple bow (Lil'Inker):

I added pink and blue banners, then hung a little diecut tag (Provocraft), stamped with an Easter sentiment and strung on a Crisp Cantaloupe thick Baker's Twine bow:

I also put an Easter sentiment on the inside of my card as well!  These colors just make me think of spring and Easter eggs!  I hope you'll play with Claire's sketch as well, and check out what the DT created!  They've outdone themselves:

Almost all the snow has melted from our storm, so I am glad Cassidy got to play in it for a little while!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

You have a great selection of Easter stamps and dies in your stash, LeAnne! I do not! I love this little bunny, too, and the soft pastels in your card are so pretty.

LeAnne, I am obsessed with your polka dot bunny and I love the gingham behind it. Your brought the wonderful pastel colors of spring together beautifully on this card and it's a fabulous take on the sketch. I was feeling all spring--like until I saw Cassidy's photo :-) I can't believe that it's the end of March here and I am still looking out of my window and seeing snow on the ground!! Have a fabulous Easter
