TLC527 One Cardstock, One Color

Hello everyone!! It's been a wild 2 weeks around hubs had surgery on the 17th.  Since he can't lift over 5 lbs and can't drive for a while, I have been doing double duty!!! Not much crafty or computer time but that's long as he has a smooth recovery without any complications, that's the main thing!!! Anyway...
My friend, Anne Harmon, was the TLC hostess this week and she had a super cool TLC challenge on cardstock and one color. This is what I came up with...

I used several Taylored Expressions diecuts that I had in my scrap box and a few extra ones to make this Easter card. 

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully, I can do a little blog surfing this week!!! Have a great day!!!

Taylored Expressions Dies: Hippity Hop, Frame in Frame Cutting Plate, Little Bits - Easter Basket, Build a Scene - Rolling Clouds, Grass Border, Think Happy Thoughts die, Pockets and Pages - April Script, Little Bits - Easter Confetti

My card features the Silhouette Stems 6 was cut on the back side of the top white layer and then a scrap piece of We Go Together 6x6 paper pad paper was taped to the back side. The sentiment from TE's Wispy Wishes stamp set was stamped across the stem and then the white layer was embossed with the Dotted Lattice Embossing Folder 

The sketch was created by Jen Shults for the Share Joy Champaign and is available for you to use if you like!!

The background papers are also from the We Go Together 6x6 paper pad from Pebbles and the button, ribbon, cording, enamel dots and heart finish it off.

My card features the super cute Taylored Expressions Easter stamp set called 
Egg-stra Special...The image was watercolored with the Tombow Dual Brush Pens - Soda Pop set. The pens were colored on an acrilic block and then the ink was picked up with an aqua pen. The pens were used directly to the paper in the smaller areas for a darker shade and the watercolor technique was used for the sky. The Wispy Grass Border was used to cut the grass diecut and the smallest frame from the Frame in Frame Cutting Plate was used to cut the frame around the sentiment from the same set. 

The TE Woodgrain Embossing Folder was used on the Toffee cardstock background and the banners were cut from several pieces of scrap patterned paper to include one from the TE Rainbow Brights 6x6 paper pack. All the papers were glued together with the Tombow Glue Pen

A little sewing was done along the edges of the banners and the enamel dots and twine finish it off.
