Happy Easter Card

 Hi Everyone:  I guess I am feeling Springy these days, because here is another Spring type card.  We have had 2 days of relatively nice weather (have fingers crossed), so here's hoping that it will continue.  It's real nice to see the hill coloured something else besides white.  I know it is snowing up in the mountains still, and it can stay there.  I can live in LaLa land for a while.

This card has been inspired by the Paper Players colour challenge and the  Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch challenge.  The colour challenge just talks Spring colours.


Stamps: Easter Blossoms
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Subtle DSP
Ink: Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Soft Suede
Accessories: Big Shot, Scallop Squares Duo, Markers (Blushing Bride, Early Espresso), XL Oval Punch, Pearls, Colour Spritzer Tool, Distressing Essentials Kit, Sponges




This is my first experience with the Colour Spritzer Tool.  Ann Schach has a video on her blog demonstrating how to use this cool tool and she always has amazing results.  Check out her blog here.  Ann always has great stories about her Boxers, Muffy and Brody and  their escapades.






So, that's it for this evening, enjoy what is left of yours.  Until next time...

  6. Karen very soft and beautiful. REally like sketch layout and your spritzer looks great. My first experience was pretty funny... squeezed so hard the bulb popped off and a glob of ink landed on my project! I LOVE that cherry blossom branch and can't imagine I didn't get that set... I better hurry before the mini is over. Seriously.... (I think I own every set from the last three minis!}. Hugs
