Happy Easter!

Yes it is time to think about making some Easter cards.  I know, it kinda snuck up on me, too!  But I sat down at my crafty table and made an Easter card that was alot of fun.  I didn't use the normal ducky, chicks or eggs either.

I got a new 6x6 paper pad the other day and just loved the colors.  Its BoBunny's Praire Chic and I think the colors are great!.  The first thing I did was cut/emboss the fence using the On The Fence Die template.  Then I stamped the butterflies using Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks.  After stamping, I covered the whole butterfly with Versamark ink and heat embossed using some sparkly embossing powder. I mixed it up myself!  I mixed together some clear embossing powder with some You're So Fine Diamond Clear Cool Highlight Glitter.  After it cooled off, I fussy cut them out.  I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then cut/embossed it using Ribbon Banners.  Here are a few close-ups.

To finish up my card, I added some seam binding and a cute button I found in my stash!  It's not your traditional Easter card but I love the colors!  Hope you have a great day!
