MTSC63 Happy Easter

Happy Wednesday Peeps!! Hope your week is going well so far!

Today I am sharing a card I made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. What a great sketch huh? I am sure I will use this one again and again.

I love the daffodils in the "Abundant Hope" set, they are so pretty and perfect for water coloring. My card base is a 5 inch square. I used so saffron card stock for matting the DS paper, which comes from the "Tall Tales" paper pack. I used my oval nesties to cut out the main image, I left the nestie in place to do a bit of light sponging around the flowers with some bashful blue ink. The sentiment comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set. I stamped it with black stazon onto some scrap watercolor paper and cut it out. I rounded the corners of one end and used the edge of the curly label punch on the other end. I pierced a bit under the sentiment and mounted it to the main image panel with some dimensionals. I added some silver sticky rhinestones on the corners of the second layer and the end of the sentiment piece. I used old olive grosgrain ribbon around the card under the flower panel.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
