Bright Cheerful Easter Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How is your week going? Today we will be on our way back from a short break in Bath. Our anniversary was yesterday and we treated ourselves to a couple of nights away. Sometimes you just have to.

In the weeks leading up to Easter I made quite a few things. I am sharing a bright cheerful Easter card I made mostly with dies from John Next Door.

The background was made with the kitchen roll I used to clean up when I was using some Pixie Powders. You let it dry, then you split the sheets and then glue the sheets to some card. I also used the corner dies from the Sandwich box set to make the lattice. 

I stamped the big Daisy stamp onto Neenah card with Memento ink then I die cut them with the Gerbera flowers die. This is just brilliant you get six different sized flowers in one go. I put some Pixie Powders on my craft mat with a little water and I used this to paint the flowers. 

This is a Sue Wilson die. I have used it a lot this year it fits into really tiny spaces. 

I hope you like this card I really enjoyed making it. I think I will be using these dies a lot. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting
