I tried to challenge myself by using a
color I do not care for - Purple.
I kept this Easter card pretty simple, and actually love it. I think it's the green ribbon that makes it work for me. Eventually I will figure out how to take a picture of my cards where you can see all the detail clearly. It's a work in progress.

I had so much fun creating this chip board house from Maya Road. This was the first time I tried paper quilling. I just love the little window boxes I made to go with the house. In person you can see I used liquid glass for the windows. The butterflies came from Close to my Heart "Butterfly Kiss"

For my Par-fect Day golf card I dry embossed white card stock, then used a circle punch to create the golf ball. I glued a golf tee to the card and placed the ball on the tee using dimensional foam for some lift. Since my handwriting is dreadful, I used my favorite font "Lucida Handwriting" in a word document, then used the "Curly Label Punch" from Stampin' Up! The sky is Bashful Blue and the grass is Garden Green.
I just love all things nature, so of course I just had to have "Branch Out" from Stampin' Up! The background was made by sponging various colors from my favorite color family "Earth Elements." I layered my tree scene on Really Rust and Chocolate Chip card stock.
