Happy Easter to Ewe!

A bit hello and Happy Easter to you! The first day of Spring was yesterday! Aren't you excited to start enjoying some warmer weather? The birds are singing in the mornings again and I'm seeing some green popping up in the flower bed! Have you started making your Easter cards yet? I couldn't resist this cute little lamb stamp! I know if it's got me smiling that it just has to be contagious and make you smile too!

I love mixing things up and using non traditional colors on projects. I can't tell you how close this little lamb was to being aqua blue. I took a vote here at home and the pink won out.
I started with a base of pretty pattern paper in Spring colors! I love lots of layers and I like to add lots of embellishments.
I wanted to add lots of drama to my focal point - the little lamb. To make it stand out more I made some big loops from Midnight Blue Twinery Twine and adhered them to my card base.
I knew I would be topping this with the colored stamped image so I didn't have to worry about the glue showing. Ranger Multi Medium Matt Adhesive keeps everything stuck in place.
I chose Midnight Blue Twinery Twine to add contrast to the colors on my project and make it stand out more. I adhered the stamped image with adhesive foam dots over the twine so just the loopy edges peek out. Twine is a great accent to add to just about any project. It lays nice and flat so it doesn't add much bulk when your mailing projects. It also adds a pop of color and texture to your layout!
The Twinery offers a great selection of twine in a color to match all your projects - and your choice of original striped or solid. I tend to gravitate to the striped - it always makes me happy. I love how it contrasts with all the dots on my design - the dots on the lamb, as well as the dots in the background paper.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Easter!
