Happy Easter

Hi!

I am falling short on my Easter Designs this year, and I am not sure how I could have been so neglectful, but I have one to share today!

I started by cutting two horizontal strips of patterned paper both rescued from my scrap box. (I am convinced it multiplies at night) and adhered them to my Regal Rose card base. A row of stars was die cut in gray then horizontally applied near the top edge of the card face then embellished with some green pearls by Martha Stewart. I stamped the Happy Easter Sentiment from Wilson Designs Lacey Lovelies in Charcoal gray in the upper right corner of my card.
I wrapped a length of red, gingham ribbon horizontally around my card front and tied it in a bow.  I embellished it with a green button which was laced and tied with a double hemp twine bow.
After dusting off the ol' Cricut lately, I cut this adorable egg from the Easter 2010 cartridge and added some microflake glitter to the cutouts dressing it up further with some paper roses.  To further tie in the star border at the top of the card, two stars were cut using my nestabilities running one through my crimper. After stacking them I tucked them behind the egg to complete this Easter Card. 

I found inspiration for this card at the Color Throwdown.

Hope you have a Fantastic Saturday! I will be back tomorrow with my first Design Team Post for the Cupcake Craft Room!  Hope you will pop back by to see what I have created!
