Surprise!!

I got some crafty time in on Friday - so I thought I'd write up this post before leaving for Florida!  This is such a soft color palette for me, but I was following the Lily Pad Palette Challenge.  These colors inspired me to make another Easter card.  I set out to find a sketch and came across The Craft's Meow March Sketch - and even though I don't have their stamps, I could still enter it! Yah!

Here are a few shots of the card:


When I first saw the sketch on the Feline Creative blog, I interpreted it differently than when I saw it on the Craft's Meow site!  So, I ended up cutting 1" off the right side of the card for the banner to hang off of.  I embossed the banner with a PTI impression plate.  I colored the PTI image in with my prisma pencils and used their sentiment as well.  I added some shimmery dots to the Nestie oval and used my Cuttlebug embossing folder for the inside panel.

So not too bad for a last minute card!!!


Here's the sketch I followed:

And here's the color palette:

Have a wonderful week!  I've got my iPad with me - so should be able to make my blog visits :)


Thanks for your visit!

I like how you cut off the extra to have the piece hanging off and all the embossing, adds so much texture. The image is gorgeous and so Easter. Enjoy your trip.
