Happy Easter

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I was out shopping today with my sister. We went looking for some wall art for my home. I picked up a couple of items and I think they will work in my living room. When I get it up, I will take some photos.

I have another Easter card for today. I usually send 10-15 cards and this is only #2. This one would be an easy one to recreate in different colors.

I made this card for this week’s color challenge #414 on Splitcoaststampers. Peggy is our hostess and she chose a great trio of colors with certainly celery, crumb cake and chocolate chip.

For my card I used the “Jesus paid it all” stamp set and coordinating Calvary die from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps. I decided to make a little scene on my Easter card. My crosses I cut with chocolate chip cardstock.

I added some grass cut from certainly celery cardstock with an MFT grass die. Added some wildflowers cut with the Memory Box “wildflower patch” die from certainly celery and white cardstock.

I cut & embossed some clouds with another MFT die and stamped my sentiments on them. My background designer paper is from Stampin-Up’s “elegant soiree” collection.
It was cut & embossed with the Spellbinders Matting Basics A & B dies.

This is also for the Splitcoaststampers LoveFest2013E challenge. Jana is the hostess and she wants us to use at least one die. I used 5 of them on this card.

That's it for me for today. So until next time.......God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Crafty Catz has a dies and punches challenge.
2.  WordArt Wednesday has an anything goes challenge.
3.  Twist of Faith Card Challenges wants us to use spring colors and a scripture or uplifting verse.
