Spring Trimmings



Sorry, it's been a while.... I had some computer problems that sidetracked my crafting.  Fortunately, the genius at the Apple Store was able to work his magic.  My computer is fixed, and I am a happy camper playing with some new digital sets.

For this Easter card I combined colored images from 2 new CDS sets, Spring Trimmings, illustrated by Laurie Wilson, and the fun notepaper image from Cool Camera, illustrated by Lisa Lara.  For the image panel, I merged a row of colored eggs from Spring Trimmings and a sentiment from Doodle Pantry on top of the notepaper image.  Then I framed the 'notepaper' with a layer of pumpkin pie, 2 layers of chevron border die cuts and finally my little basket of Easter eggs adhered with dimensionals.

The indigo blue background panel was embossed with a chevron EF.  I layered two different sizes of white chevron die cuts on top, then angled the image panel on top.  Hard to believe there is a total of 8 layers and that's not counting the flower with leaves made with the help of MS punches that have been in my stash for a number of years.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Oldie but A goodie Challenge -  Easter (MS punches, used to make the flower & leaves, have been in my stash for years.)

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
