Easter Card in Pretty Pastels

In his (the cat's) castle he is king and I his vassal.

Hi, Friends.....

I have another Easter card to share with you today.  Don't you think that pastels embody the springtime mood and make such pretty cards?  They are sure delightful to make!


Last fall, I won a very lovely prize of craftroom prunings from Audrey Yeager of Audrey's Reflection.  (THANKS, Audrey!!!!)  It was stuffed with amazing GCD Studios products, including this enchanting floral paper that I've been hoarding for an Easter card.  I'm so excited to get to use it! 

The floral and butterfly image I stamped and heat embossed in white on vellum is from a discontinued Clear Dollar Stamps set called "Elegant Accents".  The Happy Easter is from the same company (unfortunately, all their clear acrylics are d/c) from their "Easter Blessings" set.

The pretty eyelet ruffle is a thrift store find.  The other papers and cardstock are from my stash of DCWV.

It's a simple and mailable A2 size card, but I think it turned out really sweet.  Somehow, adding the ruffle reminds me of looking out a window on a spring garden full of flowers! 


Have a lovely and blessed day!!
