Easter Greetings!!


Hello everyone!! I hope your Tuesday is going ok...I finally got my hair cut today....yeaaaa!!! I don't know why I waited so long. We are going out to eat tonight for free...got an invite to listen to alternative energy sources along with a meal. I know it's a sales pitch for something...gotta be strong and leave after the meal without buying anything!!! Be strong, be strong, be strong........ anyway....

I love the color combo this week for Splitcoast's color challenge: Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Perfect Plum. The flower bouquet image by Rubbernecker was watercolored
using the challenge colors and a frame was sponged around the image with Pink Pirouette. The sentiment also by Rubbernecker, was stamped with Perfect Plum and sponged with Pink Pirouette around the edges, cutout with Nestabilities, and attached with dimensionals.








The new SU scalloped border punch was used on the top Pink Pirouette layer, the ribbon by PTI was frayed on the ends and tied with a piece of embroidery floss, the Martha Stewart punched butterfly was glammed up with tiny bling from Taylored Expressions, pink rhinestones were added to the flower image and at the bottom, and Dazzling Diamonds was added to the main flower.









These colors are sooo perfect for Easter cards....just had to make 2 today!!
I used paper from Papertrey Ink for the background.....this was the digital paper that they offered as a free download last year. I stamped the Rubbernecker script sentiment with Perfect Plum onto vanilla cs and cutout with Nestabilities. I added the sweet little blingies from Taylored Expressions to the Martha Stewart punched butterfly and the punched flower. The Martha Stewart fern punch was used for the greenery and the ribbon came from my scrap basket.
The Rubbernecker Design Team, as always, will delight you with their creations. Be sure to visit their blogs for lots of inspiration!!!
