Easter Blessings Card

Have you ever had a week (or longer) that was crammed to the max with deadlines and you swore you couldn't fit another thing into your schedule?  But then there was something else that needed doing, and then another thing, and still another!!  That's the way it's been going for the last 14 days and I don't think I can hold out too much longer!  There are so many cards I wanted to share with you that I hardly know where to start.  Considering Easter is less than a week away, I guess we'll start with one of those cards today.  Here's a simple card that I think is truly beautiful.  Everyone in class just raved about it.  So if you've got the 'ingredients' to make it, you might want to sit right down and make one for someone you care about.

Stamps:  Blessed Easter, Summer Silhouettes
Ink:  Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder, and Sahara Sand  pads, Sahara Sand and Wisteria Wonder markers
Paper:  Whisper White, Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder
Accessories:  Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches,  Extra Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval (non-SU!) punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, and Dimensionals

The pictures really don't do justice to the card.  The colors are so soft and gentle-looking that it just makes you want to go ahhhhh.  Changing the background layer to the Wisteria Wonder gives it a much more substantial look, but I really liked the airy look obtained with the Soft Sky layer. 

Adding the two layers of butterfly in the same colors really makes it stand out. And of course, the rhinestones go with just about anything to give it a more elegant look.

Like I mentioned earlier, the ladies that made this in class last week were raving about the card, so it's really a winner in my book.  I even went ahead and made a few more to get these in the mail to family members.  I hope they like it as well.  Enjoy your week ahead.  Hope you find time to get everything done that you need done (without pulling out your hair in the process!!). Oops, I think I hear the little one.   Break time must be over, so it's back to taking care of the grandkids.  See you soon!       Sharon
