Earth's Gladdest Day!

Hello friends!  I  have a real CAS card to share with you!  I'm really working on trying to conquer the CAS look... and I think I'm getting more comfortable with it!  This card is made with this month's release from ODBD - Earth's Gladdest Day.

I stamped the image with Memento and colored with Copics.  I hand cut the image and mounted on a Spellbinders Floral Oval frame.  I also colored a strip for the horizontal panel.  I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine for a heavier ink coverage.  I find this sentiment so touching!  It just might be one of my favorite Easter sentiments ever! This is one of my favorite color combos too!

Well... simple to make, simple to explain!  Hope you liked it!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
 Brown Sugar – anything goes, Cards by Lady Anne - Sentimental For Friday -- Anything Goes, Copic Marker Europe - Anything goes with Copic Markers, Crafts and Me - #119 Favorite color combo, WordArt Wednesdays -   word art freebie OR use an encouraging uplifting sentiment - #66 anything goes

Thanks so very much for blessing me with your visit and your comments!  They make my day!!!

Blessings to you!

Your Grace, it's spring again, as least I can dream. Your work is always top notch, color, layout, verses, paper, and all the embelishments are just the right touch. Thanks for sharing with us and giving of yourself.

What a beautiful Easter card! I am always impressed with your work. Can we "pin" your cards to Pinterest?

JoAnn said...

So pretty. Love that sentiment. TFS

Grace said...

gurian6... yes you may pin my cards to Pinterest. I do not have the pin it button on my blog, but you can still pin it from a pin it button on your own tool bar. That's how I pin things personally... just added the pin it button from Pinterest to my own tool bar and then I can pin away. Hope that helps!

Oh Grace,
I guess it is not unusual at my age to have a fond story for almost anything I see.
The sentiment and image touched my heart so much. As always your workmanship is so precise. Another winning beauty.
