Easter Greetings

I love to create but there are those moments when I feel panic set in - one of those being this week when the local store that sells my cards needed a top up of 40 cards....Now, I know that is a good thing but it also sent my stock of  'reserves' back a bit - not a great feeling....especially when they ordered 12 Easter cards on top of that!

Once my 'panic' subsided I got out my Spellbinders Die Templates, along with the Grand Calibur and was off to a good start.  Images was the next thing - so I printed off some free digi's from the Magic Moonlight Free Images Blog and I was on my way!

I cut out this image using the Spellbinders Labels Fifteen  and the Spellbinders Grand Calibur Die Cutting Machine    

The sentiment is computer generated - I cannot believe that I do not own one stamp with Happy Easter on it, or something along that line....I need to rectify that!  The sentiment is cut using the Spellbinders Ribbon Banner Dies

Some gorgeous crochet lace and Mulberry Paper Flowers and pearls - but you knew that didn't you! LOL!

and one very quick, vintage card is finished - it doesn't get much easier than this as the Girlz in my Card Design Class are going to find out tonight as we recreate this card along with one other....

This card is for the following challenges:
