Flourishes lc - Blessings

Hello everyone - I hope you are having a blessed Easter Weekend-it is a double celebration for us - our youngest had her 19th birthday yesterday and it was a blessing to have such a wonderful time with the family - celebrating.  Today we got together for an Easter Egg Hunt with our grandson and to celebrate Easter Sunday and all that it means to us as Christians -the sentiment from the  Flourishes lc set called My Cup Overflows illustrated by Lauren Pope; could not be more perfect - I am so blessed! 

The image has been stamped onto Flourishes Classic White card stock using black ink and coloured using Chameleon Pens.  It has been fussy cut/hand cut using scissors popped up;using 3D Foam Squares onto the Spellbinders Nestabilities Heart and Home Circle Delight Etched Dies

The patterned paper has been cut into squares and layered onto recycled cardboard, cut to size using a Matting Die.  Each of the squares has been paper pierced by hand.  This has all been adhered to a pre-cut card base using Adhesive Sheets 4 x6 prior to cutting. A row of pink seam binding has been pleated onto the lower portion of the card front, a double seam binding bow has been adhered to the lower left hand side of the Die using liquid glue, finishing off by adding a Want2Scrap pearl to the centre and to the corners of the card front.

                                             This card is linked to the following challenges
