Easter Wishes...

Hello~

I am wrapping up the Easter Creations, so I have one to share with you today!
I started this card by adding Damask patterned paper in Aqua from the Cupcake Cards & Crafts onto my Kraft card base.  Adding a doily to the right side of my card, I next layered my vintage Easter focal image onto a scalloped diecut from pink patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely line. A picket fence was punched from Kraft cardstock and given a touch of paint for a shabby look then applied to the bottom of my card front which was then dressed up a bit with two pearls. 
I wrapped some seam binding vertically around the left side of my card front and tied it in a fussy bow which I have embellished with some twine and a button along with a hand stamped tag using a bunny from Wilson Designs Spring Silhouettes and sentiment from PTI Mega Mixed Messages. I used the stamping off technique for the bunny so it would be a subtle distressed image in the background of the tag with the focus on the sentiment.  A few flowers were added to the upper right corner of the card and a touch of glitter was added to the center rose as well as the egg to complete the look of this Easter Greeting! 

My inspiration for this card started with the sketch challenge from Inspired By Stamping - which I have put my own little creative take on. 
Simple Treasures - Aqua, PInk and Pearls
The Kraft Journal - Celebrate Spring or Easter, My Craft Spot - Easter, and Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge - all papers leftover from other makes. Crafty Friends Challenges - Vintage

I am also excited to share that this card was a Top Three Winner at The Kraft Journal last week.

I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!
~Tammy~
