Another Easter Card

Good Morning and I hope you are all rested and raring to go after your weekend!  I am not going to go on about how cold it is as I think it is here to stay for a while so I will just have to put up and shut up as they say!!

Now I seem to have had a thing about Easter cards this year and I have made rather a lot. I think everyone I know will now be getting an Easter card lol!  So here is another (and I have more to post - just warning you):


I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday for the layout I really like their sketches so I may be doing another one with this sketch this week.  I have used two digi images from Digi Stamp Boutique: Easter Branch and Flower Border, they have been coloured with my Copics.  I used Grand Nesties Oval to cut out the image and the mat around it has been made with my EK border punch.  The border is Dienamics and the butterfly is Memory Box.  The sentiment is also Digi Stamp Boutique I think it came with the Easter Branch image, I have cut it out with my Lil' Inker Stitched Pennant.  The papers are Nitwits, Good Hare Day and pink cardstock is from Papermill Direct as is the white hammered card I used to make my card blank.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
The Squirrel and the Fox - Easter or Passover
Crafty Calendar - Easter Eggstravagansa
Dis Digi Designs - Easter/Spring
Crafty Sentiments - Flowers Galore
Papertake Weekly - Easter Treats
Papermill Direct - Easter Card

Well I finished my friend's invitations over the weekend so she is coming to pick them up today - one more thing to cross off my list.  I just have eight DT cards to do then I have done them all until May, although May seems closer now than when I started them lol!  I hope you are all alright wherever you are and had a lovely weekend.   Thank you so much for coming by its always lovely to see you.  See you tomorrow, take care xx

Good Morning Susan,
Great card, love that so cute image, the delicate border, the whole layout.
Have not had time to make many Easter Cards I really must get cracking.
Snow, snow and yet more snow here, as you say must just "shut up and move on" nothing else for it BUT I do hope is goes away soon.
Have a Great Day
