Happy Easter!

Hello... what a beautiful spring day! I had a busy day at work today, every year on Easter we have a Family & Friends social tea with live entertainment and refreshments. All the residents at my work had a lovely time. On Saturday, we had our annual Easter Egg hunt - and it's nice to know that we're always a kid at heart because my favourite older peeps were having a blast hunting for the eggs!!

I have a pretty card to share today, featuring the 'Fabulous Florets' stamp set - a favourite of mine! I used the 'stained glass' technique (that's what I call it), I stamped my images in 'Versamark' and embossed with white embossing powder onto 'Vellum cardstock. I then turned the vellum over so the raised (embossed) image was face down and coloured with Stampin' Write Markers then cut the images out. I die cut a few of the 'Little Leaves' sizzlet too.

I used Blushing Bride cardstock, then a piece of Primrose Petals cardstock, with a layer of Whisper White - which was embossed with the 'Scallop' textured impressions embossing folder. Once embossed I layered my little leaves and flowers until I got the look I wanted, then in the center part of the flowers I added some Tombo liquid glue to attach my vellum - added an Easter sentiment from 'Teeny Tiny Wishes' and some Baker's Twine to finish my card.
