I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Live, Love, Laugh

Happy Easter to all,

No eggs hidden at my house today so I'm having a very relaxing day catching up on some weekly blog challenges and watching baseball. I couldn't ask for a better way to spend my day.

I haven't played along with the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge in awhile and LeAnne has a fun Tic-Tac-Toe challenge this week. I'm almost late, but I'm able to squeak my card in. I chose the top horizontal option of pink, flower and lace.

For the lace element I've used the SU Sale-a-bration set Delicate Details stamping each lace border in a different shade of pink going lightest to darkest then darkest to lightest in an ombré-ish pattern. The flower element is the Wreath of Roses stamp set and die by Lil' Inker. The wreath is stamped in VersaMark on Mambo Melon and heat embossed in White EP.  I glued a piece of white card stock behind the center of the wreath and stamped the sentiment, also in the set, with VersaMark and heat embossed with Mambo Melon EP. I can't remember when I've used ribbon and a large bow last, but this card just seem to call for it. I found this pink gingham ribbon in my box.

The inside greeting is also from the Wreath of Roses set, and the flower is another Sale-a-bration SU set, but from last year.

A very girly card, for sure. Thanks for looking in,
