I made this card especially for this week's challenge over on Stamping 411. I saw the sketch and thought, "Easter is right around the corner." Then I started thinking, "What set could I use for this sketch challenge?" Then I thought of the Berry Christmas set. I know... a Christmas set. Who'da thought it? But I have used the "wreath" before in mostly green with a few pops of red (for Christmas, of course), but I thought to do the "wreath" in multiple soft Easter type colors. And that's how this card was born.
I started with a Pear Pizazz base. I topped it with a layer of Pink Pirouette that I embossed with the petals-a-plenty embossing folder. The I sanded the top of the paper to help the flowers pop a bit. I colored the inside of the flowers with So Saffron. Next is a layer of So Saffron. On top of that is Whisper White with the wreath from Berry Christmas. I stamped the whole image with Pink Pirouette. The I took a cotton swab and cleaned off various circles and colored them back in in both the Saffron and the Pear. I stamped the sting and bow and Happy Easter sentiment (from Teeny Tiny Wishes) in Pear. I used stamping dimensionals to pop that up a bit. Then I added the Pear seam binding ribbon.
Thanks for looking!
