Easter Cards

I hope I am able to complete several Easter cards
in the next couple of days.
(Posted Friday, March 30)

I used some DCWV Spring Garden DP and shiny cs that has been in my stash for a couple of years, I think.  The butterflies were cut from some scraps that I have also had for quite some time. The stamp came from a LSS - it has no name.  I colored with metallic gel pens - including gold highlights of the sentiment.

The image is by Paper Inspiration, stamped on CostcoDP, and the sentiment is computer generated.  Also: Lavalier Circle by Memory Box, Petaloo flowers with a Paper Pizzazz rhinestone center.  Misc. green and white cs, and a piece of ribbon from my stash.

For this one I created my own sentiment on the computer as my stamps seem to be in hiding.  I used a martha Stewart border punch to punch the end of the tag, and attached with pretty, shiny Amazing Aqua Dream String (twine from Pizzazz Aplenty).  This can be included in my hoarded stash, as I got some twine several months ago, and this is the first I have cut into this one.  I punched the butterflies with a Marvy punch, using a bit of CS in my stash of scraps that I save for this purpose. The bg is dry embossed with Stylized Flowers (Cuttlebug).
