Easter card ....

... Good afternoon.  It's very grey here today, which isn't helping me much as I'm feeling really rough.  However, I've managed to make a clean, simple Easter card to share with you and to go into my stash:

Happy Easter - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Uniko Studio - Bright Butterflies; Waltzingmouse - Compact Sentiments; Splat That
Inks: Brilliance - Peacock; Stampin' Up! - Marina Mist
Dies: US - Bright Butterflies
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Certainly Celery; Vellum; Gems

I've used several challenges to make this card, they are:



I love the colours in the Uniko Studio graphic, that was the start of this card, butterflies appear are in both Card Concept and the Time Out graphics and when I saw the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch - it all fell into place! I made the card base from pale green card and cut a white panel to go on top.  I stamped a spatter pattern using Brilliance inks (they have a subtle shimmer).  I stamped the sentiment, made the little banner and adhered it to the card.  I stamped the butterflies, using Brilliance ink, on to white card and again on vellum and used the matching dies to cut them out.  I attached one butterfly flat to the card and then used dimensional gel to adhere the vellum overlay.  I finished the front with a few gems.  On the inside, I cut another white panel and stamped some flowers and added a couple more vellum butterflies.

That's all for today - I'm going to make a nice hot cup of coffee, wrap myself in a blanket and curl up to watch a movie.  See you soon!
