Happy Easter

Card By Ardyth
This Week's Tuesday Trigger
MFW Tuesday Trigger
We have a wonderful inspiration card by Ardyth for this week's Muse challenge. I really like the rainbow of 5 different colors, the embossed sentiment matching the card base & the CAS design.  I was still working on Easter cards & loved the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger with the pretty pastels, so my inks are 5 favorites by Brilliance.  To keep with the really fun nature of this card, I used the somewhat funky images from Stampendous! Bold Blossoms set.  Decided gray was a better choice than black with my colors, so that's what I used for the card & the sentiment.  Now that sequins are in I randomly added some clear ones & put a tiny pearl in each center.  Thanks for coming by--your comments always brighten my day.

Hello Greta
Wonderful design. You have followed through with the muted palette perfectly, and you have included the movement throughout your design which is not always easy to do.I love the large text it is juxtaposes brilliantly with your Bg, and Brown is the right choice.
Happy Easter weekend my friend...enjoy.

Hey Greta! I'm so glad that you stopped by my blog today (thanks for the sweet comment) because it led me back here...to your beautiful work! You have such a keen sense of design and color coordination!. I just about fell of my chair when I saw your card that you made for the PTI blog hop....corner angle sequins is pure creative genius!

Another gorgeous card, Greta! You sure have an eye for colour, design and the 'special touches' with your embellishment selections. Your cards truly are great (I almost wrote 'greta') 'teaching lessons'. Hmmm...actually they are "Greta" lessons...Thank you for the morning smiles!
