WMSC 87 - Easter Greetings


Can you feel it?  Spring is definately in the air.  The Chicago area weather is warm and more than just a little bit breezy!  Talk about March coming in like a lion and all, we've had high wind advisories for the past few days!  You wouldn't believe some of the things I've seen blowing down the street!!  At least one of them is not me yet!
WMS Sketches_MS font_separateToday I'm playing along with Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #87 from WM DT member Renee Lynch.  I used the Nestie Eggs set to make a bright colored Happy Easter card.  I love how this set contains different styles so you can go casual or elegant depending on what different patterned eggs you choose and what color ink you kiss them with.   The sentiments are great too!!  Everything you need for a great Easter card in one set.  For the cherry on top I added a seam binding bow and lots of bling.  These stamped eggs are so pretty they really don't need any extras but you know me - I can't resist sprinkling around a package of gems!   The corners are cut from gold foil paper.
I recycled the glittery twine from a package of dies I ordered from Absolutely Everything.  Renee got me hooked on them - the store and the dies.  Anyway, the items I ordered came wrapped up in tissue paper topped with this pretty glittery pink twine.   It was like receiving a present in the mail!!  Just thought I'd point it out since you might have missed it on your first look - it is light pink and very sparkly.   
Thanks for having a look - I hope you have a great day!

Jeanne

Jeanne this is such a pretty spring card! Love all the extra details - the little glittery gems and beautiful ribbon & flower centre/brad you added to the egg & the sparkly pink twine is lovely too. The way you define the corners using those gorgeous die cut shapes as well looks amazing xxx

Oooo love those eggs, Jeanne! The pink one is gorgeously detailed with the gems and the bow! Love the jaunty angle of the mini one ;). The little corner details are wonderful with this sketch. A beautiful color scheme for spring, too!

Just awesome! That color combination is a knock-out! And those eggs are fantastic! I was looking at those stamps and the matching dies the other day and I didn't get them:( One day!

Hope you have a great weekend Jeanne!

I love this! I've never seen this stamp set before and made the cutest Easter card. I love that beautiful button with the sparkles and that bow is so pretty. The gold corners added such an elegant touch. Cute pink twine too, neat that you could recycle it!
