Spring is in the air...
Retro Rubber Challenge #11...

Easter Daffys...

Hello all!  Can you believe that March is on its way out and Easter is just around the corner?  I can’t!  I haven’t made any Easter cards yet.  What?!?!  I can’t believe it either!  So I am going to try to sneak a couple in this week.  Starting with this one!

I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches and getting this card in just before the challenge closes.  I was looking for some sketch ideas and found this one.  So I played along.

I used some of the sheer perfection vellum paper.  I find this paper to be full of very strong images that really take center stage.  So I kept this pretty simple and backed the vellum with white CS.  These flowers look like daffodils to me and daffys always reminds me of spring and Easter.  They are one of my favorite flowers.

I used this gorgeous Easter die and cut five layers of smokey slate and one layer of a shiny yellow CS that came in my SSS March card kit.  I added the stamped sentiment and ran the smokey slate layer thru the PTI linen impression plate.

I am very pleased with how clean and simple this turned out to be.

This is so pretty! I love how the yellow Easter die cut looks with the shades of white and gray. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
