Easter Greetings

Good day, I hope that you are all having a wonderful Easter Sunday and the Easter bunny was good to you.. It is such a beautiful and sunny day and you can tell that spring is here. I have the turkey in the oven and my parents are coming for a visit later this afternoon.

Before they arrive I thought that I would pop on and share with you a card that I have made just for today.

I was playing with some masking the other week and inked up a whole bunch of my favorite Magnolia images at that time. Now I am ready any time that I want to sit down and colour. For today's card Tilda has been coloured to match a bunch of paper scraps that were on my desk, it is always easier to use them up rather than put them away.

To keep it nice and airy I have layered in a lace doily and the Metal embellishment in the corner has been painted white for a sort of shabby chic feel. I have added in a cheery spring floral arrangement of flowers from Wild Orchid crafts and topped it off with a butterfly which is something that we have not seen yet around here but I am sure they will be back soon with this wonderful weather that we have been having.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Happy Easter!

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
