Happy Easter

Today I made a start on making Easter cards - need to make a lot before my charity sale Saturday week - managed to make six today and this is the first one. I dug out some very old K & Co papers - this one is taken from the 'daffodil' pad, mounted on to a card blank with a ready cut fancy edge (got some of these at Hobbycraft when I had a 25% off voucher - wish I'd bought more) distressed with shabby shutters DI. The decoupaged paper flowers are Docrafts (bought last year and not used then). Sentiment (from a Forever Friends set of stamps) inked with memento rich cocoa.

Easter inspired by Cupcake inspirations 199:
