Easter Blessings



I'm a little anxious for spring and when I saw this A2 Easter egg card template posted on one of the SCS threads, I knew I wanted to create an Easter card. This card is for 3 challenges:
ODBD Shining Light Challenge - over stamping
Creative Cottage Challenge - fabulous florals
Just Us Girls - aqua, melon, kraft
The dahlia was stamped with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink, cut out, layered with foam dots and Diamond Stickles added to the center. Edges were also sponged by the same ink. The BG is from Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane & Life's Portrait pad and was layered on Vintage Cream CS which is the card base.

STAMPS: Delightful Dahlia (PTI), Easter Blessings (ODBD) - sentiment, He is Risen (ODBD) - cross

This is fantastic, Wanda! LOVE that you created an egg shaped card and prettied it up with a beautiful bloom, foliage and a cross. Sometimes you don't need a ton of layers to make an absolutely stunning card, and you proved that with this beauty!
