Head Start on Easter

Made an Easter card for a very good friend to give her Mom.  I had just bought the Everlasting Life set from Verve recently and it was the excuse I needed to try it out!

This pretty pretty paper from Tres Jolie I've all but completely covered.  I always do that when I'm fussying so much. 

I used two MFT dies (border & rolled flower) & two spellbinders nestibilities (large oval & labels 5).  The flower under the rolled flower is a Martha punch.  Other then that, a little bit of sewing, lace, velvet ric rac & pale yellow sheer ribbon... and of course lots of pearls!  =)

Here's the inside:
I love the spellbinder cross collection - so pretty & easy peasy to work with.  It will be great to make more Easter cards using these dies and that gorgeous Verve set.  And the entire weekend ahead of me........ oh yeah!

Have a lovely weekend ALL!

AACCKKK! My mother is going to be head over heels with your Easter card creation. I adore your use of yellow and oh my goodness those Spellbinders are well, spellbinding! Can't thank you enough.

Thanks for your sweet comments!!!;-)
Love your cards too! Love this last one with the cross. The cross is one spellbinder die I don't have yet, but it's certainly a beauty!!

hugs, Elly
