Easter Blessings


It is time to think about Easter cards - I need to have a few ready for our craft sale this week end.
I used this sketch:  http://cardpositioningsystems.blogspot.com/
The flowers were inspired here: http://basicgreychallenges.blogspot.com/   I used a piece of BG
Origins cs.
This asks for flowers:  http://totallystampalicious.blogspot.com/
I  used favorites - I have a lot, but the ones here are embossing folders, and Easter - the meaning of Easter is important in my life, and I also have many favorite Easter hymns :  http://totallypapercrafts.blogspot.com/
The religious Easter card is for: http://craftuscrazy.blogspot.com/
I bought the stamp a few years ago at my LSS, and it has no label.  DP by Basic Grey.  Nesties, and a border punch by Martha Stewart.  I used the Swiss Dots (CB) embossing folder.  Another favorite is the technique to ink the folder then emboss.  For some reason, I had lots of ink but it did not show well, so I sponged the Color Box marigold ink directly on the embossed piece.  The flowers are colored with shiny metallic (fiskars) gel pens.  I also used a corner rounder punch, but totally forgot I was going to use it on the white piece!
