Happy Easter!

Is it ever too early to celebrate a holiday? I think NOT!
This card was made for two reasons. The first being the 8th sketch challenge on Card Patterns.
The second being my submission for Clear Dollar Stamps Guest Designer contest. We were to use the color purple. I used Amethyst because I really love that color, and it's great for Easter and spring! If you ask my 2 yr. old daughter, she would call it "puhple" and that's her "favowite co-wer)"! Can you tell she can't say her "R's"?! She's so cute! I'm biased, I know! ;D

Anyway, I used Almost Amethyst, So Saffron and Mellow Moss. The ribbons are both purple. The tulip is from Terrific Tulips by Stampin' Up! and the butterfly is from Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Butterflies. I haven't used the Butterflies that much, but I've had them on the brain lately in regards to sitting on flowers like I have it here. So, I'm liking how this turned out! My husband said he really liked it too! Bonus points for me!

Have a wonderful day!
Happy Stamping!!!

  3. So pretty! I love the scene you've created here. The butterfly looks great!

  4. This is really pretty and makes a perfect springy Easter card. Thanks for playing along with us again!!

  5. Erin this is beautiful! Did you use chalk to color the circle? Love those ribbons and the embossed background.

  6. Oh Erin I love that embossed background. And that butterfly is perfect. Another wonderful creation. Thanks for playing along with us.

  7. That's very pretty, and the sentiment looks like it is inside or printed on an Easter egg.

  8. Oh, this is so soft and pretty! The 3d grass and popped up butterfly are perfect accents!

  9. Love your grass and your ribbon choices. Super cute ideas. Great job with the Card Patterns Sketch.

    It's a good life!
