Easter Wishes

When I got my Cardmaker Magazine, there was a delightful card from Julie Overby that was so pretty and when I saw it as the Project in the newsletter (here)  I knew I was going to CASE it... I just adapted it with what supplies I had.

I only had the Tessatina die instead of the Spellbinders Lattice die, so had to cut it 4 times.  I used my Xyron mini sticker maker to layer it onto some green PP.  The cross stamp from Inkadinkado was too large for the size I wanted so I stamped it and then photocopied at 75%.  Reduced to the perfect size!   I cut it with a Spellbinders oval and then trimmed a blue mat and added to the Fancy oval die cut.   I cut out a banner with the Simon Says die and stamped the sentiment.   My outer mat looks black but is in fact a very dark purple which looks awesome with the dark teal.

Entering this into the Easter/Spring challenge at Simon Says Stamp

Thanks for stopping by.
