Easter Blessings

First I'd like to welcome all my new followers. It's a joy to have you here! I'll visit you as well. Come by often and lets support one another. And as always, thank you to all my very loyal followers!

I took part in the Easter Club over at Create with TLC. She gave us some GREAT images! It's such a reasonable price for everything you get from Paulette. If you haven't tried it yet, I would encourage you to, it really is worth it! The image I used on this card is one from the club and I adore it! I colored it in my usual style then aged it with TH Distress Ink Old Photo. Next i dripped water on it and then crinkled the heck out of it to make it look old and used. I wanted a vintage look to the paper to match the image.

The card is rather large, 5 1/4" x 8 1/4". I needed it large so that the image could be the focus but still have room for embellies.

Inside I went with layers and a couple more flowers. I used a very old Stampin' Up sentiment stamp that I had but I thought it made sense for Easter. It's actually a pretty versatile stamp and I tend to use it often.

Well Easter is a week away and I still have two more cards to make and get in the mail. I think I'll make it this year! Whoo hoo!
