Easter & Thank You

The March Poppystamps Challenge is Floral Fantasy.  I  decided to start with an emboss resist background.
Images from Poppystamps Little Kindness were white embossed & then blended with DO Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, Worn Lipstick & Wilted Violet.  I've seen some pretty cards that have white diecuts on a colorful background, so pulled out my PS Stitched Bloom Trio dies.  I brushed all the blooms with a shimmer pen & covered them with Nuvo Glaze.
The sentiment from W&W was white embossed & cut with a PTI flag die.  I added black Pico Embellisher dots to the white blooms & clear ones to the background.  I'm also entering DCD & SSS Wednesday.

The March Memory Box Challenge is to use glitter paper or glitter glue.  Since I need to make more Easter cards, I pulled out my old MB Classic Egg & Filagree Egg dies.
I have some 2 inch wide glitter tape rolls including aqua, pink & green pastels.  Unfortunately I can't get a picture that shows how beautiful they are.  I attached a strip of each color to a scrap of white cardstock & die cut the solid egg.  Then I die cut the filagree egg 3 times from another white scrap.
Before gluing on the top layers, I brushed each one with a shimmer pen.  The Poppystamps Double Stitch Scalloped Rectangle Frames was die cut from Smokey Shadow cardstock & mounted to a panel of Soft Stone.  The little word from Pinkfresh Delicate Wreath was stamped in Smokey Shadow.  I'll add the Easter sentiment to the inside of the card.  I'm also entering The Snippets PlaygroundWAW.

I've sold some of my purged stamps & had fun making little postcards to include in the envelope.  I stamped the foliage from Uniko Season of Beauty in Altenew Galactic Stream & Aqualicious.
The sentiment from PFS Delicate Wreath was stamped in Versafine Clair Nocturne & I wrote a little note on the back.  I made another one using 2 green inks, but didn't take a picture before I sent it.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.
