Easter Tulips

Just a quick post this time around to share an
Easter card I put together.

It's not very often I make a card other than the usual rectangular shape,
but the challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas is to make an "odd" card.
So I chose to do an easel card.
The color combo was inspired by the color challenge at
Inspired by Stamping.

I started with this free digital stamp from Birds Cards
which I colored with spectrum noir markers and fussy cut.

The image was foam taped to the circle die cuts which were cut with
Sizzix framelits and they were place on the
other die cuts which were cut with the Cricut cartridge
"Elegant Edges". All this was placed on the embossed background.
I used some Lifestyle Crafts dies for the sentiment and used a
Martha Stewart border punch and a Fiskars butterfly punch.
The finishing touches were the tiny pearls and pretty bow.
I'm so pleased with the final outcome I'm inspired to
get another easel card made!
