Blue and green Easter

It was lovely on Saturday to sneak a good crafting session and make a fair number of Easter cards. This is another one I made then. It's a fairly unusual combo of green and blue, but I think it works. The green stardream card blank is sparkly, but that doesn't show here. I cut off the right hand piece, matting the cross topper half way so that when the card is closed it goes over the spotted offcut I've used for part of the inside. The sentiment was generated on the Dymo letratag and I added a wooden butterfly embellishment that I've had for a long time (got another couple).

This is for:

  5. Hiya Hazel!

    Big thanks for sharing such a wonderful Easter card. It an absolute beauty for the eyes and it really does come alive!
    I think the use of the Dymo to create the sentiment was a stellar option, it helps bind it all together and give an extra bit of "pop" to the design!

    Great job.

    I wish you and your family all the best this Easter!

    With warm regards,
    Jesper K
