Happy Easter

This card is for the fourth Viva la Verve challenge for March. The twist was to go CAS. Well, to the extent of using only one embellishment. Ugh! Definitely a challenge for me, LOL! I'm really behind with making Easter cards, so I'm taking this opportunity to build my stash.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Rose Red and Raspberry Tart DSP. The circle element is another pattern of DSP cut/embossed with a large Circle Nestabilities die layered on Rose Red cut/embossed with large Scalloped Circle die. The focal image uses a stamp from Verve's new set called Miracles Blossom. The stem and leaves were stamped with Kiwi Kiss and the flower was stamped with Rose Red on Whisper White. I stamped the flower again on DSP, cut it out and paper pieced it. Punched out the corners with my Ticket Corner punch, layered it on Kiwi Kiss and Rose Red, on which I used my scalloped border punch, and popped it up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is a Plain Jane and was stamped on Whisper White with Rose Red, layered with Kiwi Kiss and Rose Red, and is also up on foam squares. My ONLY embellishement is a raspberry colored Dew Drop in each corner.

Thanks for dropping by!
