Not an Easter Card

Good morning to you all and for those of you celebrating I hope you have a lovely Easter weekend.  I am so excited because my son, DIL and two adorable grandsons are coming up tomorrow for a whole week! I am in a state of high excitement - not sleeping, rushing around like a headless chicken and driving my other half mad!!

For my card today I have gone with CAS style and its not even an Easter card!!

The image is DSB Sketchy Flower 3 which I printed straight onto my Papermill Direct Linen card. I also printed the image several times onto some Nitwits paper from the Good Hare Day Collection and then 3D onto the image with some silicone gel.  I really am enjoying adding a bit of 3D to my cards when I can and this image was perfect for it. The sentiment is Pink Petticoat which I also printed straight on, then rounded the corners. Just a bit of twine and a button finished it off.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Happy Birthday
Dutch Dare Challenge - CAS
Creative Creations - Letter B (Button, Bow, Bloom, Birthday)
Digi Darlas - Flowers
The Pink Elephant - Clean and Simple

That's all for me today! I have to go and check some more things of my list and schedule my DT posts for next week!  Thank you so much for looking and if you have time please leave a comment! See you tomorrow, have a great day - take care xx

This is gorgeous! I love the simplicity and the image is fabulous. The lady stamps I used on my page are wooden and came in a box originally I think. Hero Arts sounds right to me, thank you. I hope you are having a lovely Easter Weekend with your grandsons! xx
