Vintage Easter!

I love the colors over at Color My Heart this week!  I really do love the paper pack Ivy Lane; however, I don't have it yet!  It really is on my next order.  Every few months or so, I get with my sweet CTMH consultant, Miss Katie, and place my order.  That way I always have something new to inspire me!  We have a group who goes together and orders at the same time.  We take turns being "hostess" and get all the wonderful gifts and deals CTMH has to offer!  It's also fun to see what everyone is getting and how they plan to use it!

So, about this card!  Since I don't currently have Ivy Lane, I went with the Blush, Hollyhock, Sweet Leaf, and Smokey Plum colors.

My card base is CTMH Sweet Leaf.  I did some distress sanding on the Smokey Plum.  The flower and egg are both from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  The flower was embossed with the CTMH polka dot folder;  I then distress sanded it.  The narrow Sweet Leaf strip on the right side of the card was stamped with a flower stamp from the Sky Lark Scrapbooking Workshop Set.

The Easter scene is from the Some Bunny Hostess Stamp Set.  (See!  There's one of those perks I was talking about in the beginning of this post!)  Those sweet little ones and the eggs (opaque gems) were colored with CTMH Markers:  Hollyhock, Smokey Plum, Sweet Leaf and Bush.  I left some of the gems white.

The bow is CTMH Seam Binding.  The sentiment is from the Some Bunny set and was stamped in Daisy White Pigment Ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Ok, off to prepare some music for a Lent service tonight.  Enjoy what is left of the weekend!
