Do March Showers bring April Flowers?

We have had such a wonderful March! It's been cool and damp here in the desert. Last night, I was awakened with the wind outside just hauling! Then, later, I was awakened with pouring rain outside! Morning came with bright sunlight! We're in a wet pattern that is great for the water levels and horrible for those of us with allergies!

I've been working on cards. I do have one to share with you today that is for Easter. I put it up on Etsy and it was gone in no time! That's the second time in a week that one went right after I posted it! The nice thing is that it is the same person, so I can only guess she likes my work! I like her, too! I hope she isn't disappointed. LOL

Here it is:

I decide to do a round card this time. I love this little Tilda. That egg is adorable. I inked the edges of the lavender papers and cardstock just to give it depth. I used the Cat's Eye Lavender inkpad to match the papers. I colored the image w/ Copics.

This is the inside top of the card. I pulled out my Cricut and put it to work for me. The stickers are rimmed in a multicolored silverish effect. It made a nice contrast against the papers.

I fell in love with that ribbon. The flowers on it are just perfect! For the shapes, I used my Nesties.

Here is what the card looks like completely on the inside.

So, that is one of the cards I did this week. I am so not a purple person! The papers are lovely with it.

I'm going to hunker down with a book, I think. I'm tuckered out. I had a busy day, LOL.

Thank you so much for stopping by! It is so sweet that you have taken the time to visit. I hope you will come back again!
