Congratulations Diana!!!
Your Easter project was really~really cute and very original.  I bet that your DD loved it ;-)

Please -->email me<-- your mail addy so I can send you the candy :-)

Now this week's challenge from SWF is to make something using 3 papers, 3 flowers and 2 buttons...  so here's my take:


It's a Spring card!
And these papers are so cute...  they are Quite Contrary from My Mind's Eye.  Of course, I colored my image with Distress Inks ;-)

And here's another trick I want to show you:


See the paper flowers?
They are Crepe Paper that I cut using my Sizzix.  But the fun part was that, with a couple of drops of Distress Inks and some water mixed in a spray bottle, I sprinkled the Crepe Paper adding a nice, vintage effect to the flowers.  Pretty cool, ha?

And here's how my card looks when opened...  I still have to finish it though:


Now drop by Stamp With Fun to see what the rest of the DT did this time ;-)

Happy Stamping!

  • Patterned Paper - Quite Contrary by My Mind's Eye
