Easter Blessings

Hello Blogger Friends. Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
Don't know if you were able to see the moon last night but it was beautiful. I read it is the largest supermoon of 2020. I woke up before 6:00 am because it was shining in my bedroom.
I got up and went on my deck to take a look. It was so beautiful in between the trees. Tried to go back to bed but I was fully awake so my day started rather early. I have a photo on my cell phone. I will see if I can post it here on my Blog.
Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #784. Stef was our hostess and she chose blushing bride, melon mambo and graperfruit grove as the color trio. Optional was to add flowers to your card.
melon mambo, grapefruit grove, blushing bride
I decided to focus on the grapefruit grove color this week. My gingham background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "Brights" collection.
For the image, I used a new Spring die from CottageCutz- Hello Spring Bloom. The circle is cut from the Stitched Doily die also from CottageCutz.
For the leaves and stems, I used some designer paper in the Stampin'-Up mossy meadow (neutral) color. It has a nice gradient to it and I knew it wouldn't be to dark for these Spring colors.

Die-cut my Easter phrase, stamped the Blessings word (choc chip ink) and added a few white enamel dots to finish off my card. This card went out in the mail a couple of days ago. So it will arrive on time for Easter.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time...…..God bless.
