Happy Easter

Its been a lovely Good Friday - starting out with clouds that later delivered the rain that was promised and finishing with sunshine. Lots of people going to Church today - including me :-) and a busy day for the Fish Mongers in town!

And so fittingly, today's card has a Good Friday theme for Easter too.

The card base is Baked Brown Sugar stamped with the Hardwood in the same colour. Then there is a piece of white card before the delightful piece of the Watercolor Wonder DSP - which just seems so colourful and celebratory for Easter!
The Cross is another piece of Baked Brown Sugar stamped with Hardwood - and the individual Planks are cut to size and layered with dimensionals.
Unfortunately, even though it is embossed with White Embossing powder, the greeting doesn't really stand out but in some ways that is good as the Cross remains the star.
Next there are two lovely Tulips from the Simple Stems set and then there are the leaves. Now ideally I would've used my Bird Punch for these but it has not yet been released from the punch "hospital" after an admission for a paper jam - fortunately it has been repaired, just not quite home yet :-) So the last resort was indeed the stems front the Simple Stems set - with the top of the stem removed.

So I hope you are having a very good Good Friday wherever you are today and whatever you are doing and wishing you all a very Happy Easter!

Happy stamping until next time,
