Bless Your Little Heart

Hello friends - thank you so much for stopping by.  It is Easter weekend, Saturday night and I am snatching a moment to share a card I created using a lot of my favourite products - tomorrow will be busy as we celebrate such an important day in History - The Resurrection of Christ - I love the meme I have been seeing a lot on facebook ...'It is not about the Bunny - it is about the Lamb!'  So true!

In saying this - we will be having an Easter Egg Hunt for our Grandson - but that is not our focus! Now on with the card...

I have used  an image from Crafty Secrets - how adorable is it!?  It has been cut out and popped up onto a card front that has been cut/embossed using Spellbinders Nestabilities Fancy Edged Rectangles Etched Dies #7 (#1 being the smallest) and the Platinum 6 Die Cutting and Embossing Machine - 6" PlatformThe card base has been lightly sanded using a Sanding Block and popped up onto a precut cream card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

The Banner is from The Little Birdie Handmade Embellishments - and is self adhesive - popped up at the top of the image.

The Burlap Stars are from the same pack - I love the texture of them and the little touch of bling.  The have been adhered onto a strip of Washi Tape that I purchased from a local Thrift Store.  The Strip under the image is from the front of an old journal and was perfect to add rather than lace for this card - in my opinion anyway! Wink:wink!!
