Pinterest Inspired Easter Card

Hello everyone!! It has been raining for the last two days....the ponds are full and the creek is's time to stop raining or get in the Ark...LOL!!! Rainy days really get me in the mood to play in the craft room!!! I went to the Taylored Expressions boards on Pinterest to find a little inspiration for my card today.  An awesome card by Taylor gave me the inspiration I was looking for....pretty colors and a random pattern!!

This is Taylor's card.....don't you just love all the bright, happy colors!!!

handmade card: Rainbow Chevron by Taylor VanBruggen  ... uses chevron cutting plate with thick and thin chevrons ... luv the bright colors arranged diagonally down the card in rainbow color order... great card!! ... Taylored Expressions ...

White cardstock was cut with the Hexagon Cutting Plate from
Taylored Expressions. Then several other Hexagon Cutting Plates were cut from TE's Rainbow Brights and Build a Scene 6x6 paper packs. The cuts were inserted randomly and glued in place.  

The sentiment was created with the Think Happy Thoughts die and the Easter die from the Pockets and Pages April Script set

Baker's Twine and Rainbow Brights Sequins finish it off. 

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!!

I love seeing some spring like colors and your card is so beautiful! Perfect for Easter for sure!
We haven't had the rain like you but did end up with about an inch. We always seem to be on the tail end of wet weather.
