Happy Easter Sweet Pea Style

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! Can you believe that Easter is Sunday and I'm just now sharing my first Easter card?!?! Several people on my card list are going to be getting "Happy Belated Easter" cards :) March just sped by for me, I can't believe tomorrow is April 1st. Not that I'm complaining, it's warm again here after a chilly spell at the end of last week. The birds are out chirping, the grass is green, the trees are budding . . . I love spring :) Anyway, onto my card for today.





For my card today, I used another gorgeous stamp from ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection, available at Sweet Pea Stamps. This particular image is called Fantasy Easter Ocean and I think it's gorgeous. I colored my image with copics and then I sponged around the image with SU's Pretty in Pink ink. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock (Certainly Celery and Rose Red). The design paper is from The Paper Company (I got it at Michael's). I used my SU ticket corner punch on all the corners and added pearls. I added a ribbon and a bow (tied with my bow easy). For a finishing touch, I added Primas and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. I am submitting this card to the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog. This is a new blog created to host challenges using Sweet Pea Stamps. They are looking for a design team and I figured, as much as I love these images, I might as well give it a try :) Wish me luck :)

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you back here tomorrow with a Magnolia project.

Hugs, Christine :)
