Hello

Is everyone ready for the Easter Bunny to stop by? Not so sure this house is, but we'll be ready one way or the other...so much going on this weekend.

I have a card to share with you today and hold on to your hats...there's no seam binding on this one. :-)

I knew I wanted to create something different, so I started this card by stamping "stems" using Mint Motif's Beyond Borders in PTI Simply Chartreuse and "flowers" using WPlus9 Mehndi Medallions in Stampin' UP!; Peach Parfait, Momento; Angel Pink, and Momento; Dandelion onto Whisper White cardstock.  I rounded the corners using a Corner Chomper cloud punch and inked the edges with Camomile tea stain. I took a length of PTI Simply Chartreuse twill ribbon and wrapped it horizontally around my Whisper White cardstock leaving some length off at the ends which was tied off with some twine and embellished with a button.
A sentiment from Wilson Designs Everything's Owlright was stamped in Stampin' UP! Peach Parfait and mounted onto the card front.  The focal panel was then mounted onto a Kraft card base using foam mounting tape.

Color Inspiration for this card came from Colourq131.
I found my layout inspiration from the April Sketch at Create
Photobucket
The Pink Elephant  - Clean and Simple
I'm excited to share that this card was featured in CREATE's Easter CARD's Challenge Gallery. 

I always appreciate your visits and sticking with me through my shares. I hope you have a great and fantastic start to your Easter Weekend!
~Tammy~
