2011 Easter Cards

In the Magnolia Ink Spring Special there was a gorgeous Easter Card created by Debbie.  I fell in love with this very cute card.  I didn't have the Tilda with Big Ribbon stamp, so I substituted an older Tilda with Tulips.  She fit nicely on the Swing.  The article showing this card was a Step by Step - Create a Scene using masking, which I have done many times.  I also substituted the Shabby Chic Fence for the fence Debbie used.  I had the Butterfly Background and Tilda's Birds, so I had most of the stamps that were used.

Here is a picture of the seven cards I made.

The flowers used were from Wild Orchid Crafts or JoAnn's. Ribbons were Walmart - if you like the ribbon, buy it in every color available!!

Here's a close up of a couple of the cards.

The purple iris was a Walmart stem.  The tiny buds hanging down were Wild Orchid Crafts.  Every card had one of the daffodils from WOC on it in the corner.  Every card had a different color scheme which was really fun gathering papers, cardstock and flowers to coordinate.

Have a very blessed Easter and enjoyable, restful Sunday!  Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me some Maggie love!
