Easter-Joy

For my card I used ODBD's Tulip Tag set to create this pretty simple card. 


This set also coordinates with the Tag Die! 

I used SU! Pear Pizazz and Blushing Bride, and Papertrey Vintage Cream.  The designer paper is K&Co Spring Blossom.  The ribbon is May Arts Silk, the image is colored with Copics and the ink is Memento Rick Cocoa. The pearls are ZVA Creative.

Hope you enjoyed my super quickie card!  I love Easter!!! For the Christian, it is at the very heart of our faith and hope, in that since Jesus arose from the dead, victorious over death, we too will be given everlasting life!   Death is not to be feared, because if we know Him as our Savior we know we will be with Him eternally!  What an awesome and joyous thought!  I am wishing YOU Easter JOY!

 Now on to see the great card Jan has for you!  Thanks for stopping!!!

Ohhh! Your card is just lovely! The pearls add an elegance. The matching tulips are beautiful and clever. I really like the tag stamp and the way you've incorporated it into your design!

Traci M said...

Grace, this card is anything but a quickie in my book, it would take me awhile, but that just shows your talent!! Your paper is absolutely gorgeous, especially with your tulip tag that is also beautiful!! But I have to laugh, as I was reading the previous comments and everyone commenting on your butterflies...but what I saw was a bunny, big ears, fat cheeks, up in the corner...it's funny what you see when you're not looking for anything, just gazing. Thanks for sharing your lovely work with us. I agree, Easter is the heart of our faith and hope!! Wishing you a blessed week!

Charlotte Ann said...

Oh, my ... this may be a quickie card, but it sure packs a lot of WOW! LOVE your pearl butterflies!
