Happy April Fool's Day!

Well, did you prank anyone today? Since DH is out of town, I haven't anyone to pull a trick on! The cats wouldn't get it. LOL This day always seemed to mark the start of Spring for me for some reason. I guess, for some of you, that would be hard since you've gotten snow! Maybe April snow brings May flowers! Keep a head's up today so you won't be outsmarted! LOL

I have an Easter card to share today. I chose the colors pink and green. I just love this stamp! Tilda looks so cute! Here are the card images:





I used paper lace and elevated the center image on pop dots. I chose to add tiny little pearls around the oval. As you can see, I also used machine stitching, inking, and WOC flowers. There is also a tiny Easter egg charm which says, "Happy Easter" on it.



This is the upper inside of the card. I used more paper lace and elevated the sentiment on pop dots.





This is the lower inside of the card. The center panel has not been elevated so that a sentiment may be written with ease.



This card is available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.
