Happy Easter!

Hello my crafty friends!

Getting closer to Easter, I thought to create an Easter card to share with you. And to make it more interesting for me, I decided to combine a few challenge themes together! So I decided to use the Muse Challenge layout as my base and then use the elements of the other challenges to enhance my project! Here is my little card!Hope you like it!

Quick Instructions:

To create this little card I first used the rectangle nested dies to die cut a frame. Then I lightly marked with a pencil where the frame would be placed and I stamped the butterfly and the flowers masking off the parts that I wanted to look like being in front of other parts.I then used Zigs to color the images. I stamped the sunflowers on a separate cardstock paper and colored them again. Then I fussy cut them and thaced them with a black Sharpie. I let my images to dry completely. In the meantime, I used Copics to draw the wood effect on the frame. Next I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock. I cut it down and draw faux stitching with a white gel pen. I stuck the frame and the sentiment down using double sided tape and I adhered the sunflowers using foam tape to add some dimension.Finally I used Wink of Stella Clear glitter to add give the flowers some sparkle!And that completed my card!
