Hello, my crafty friends! Can you believe we’re on the downslide to the latter half of April already?! Wow, time is just flying by! The April challenge went live on the 5th over at Let’s Craft and Create, and I’m happy to share my mid-month DT inspiration project for Challenge #124 – Easter and/or April Showers! Show us an Easter project or one depicting “April Showers”…

I have lots of Bugaboo digis in my stash so I chose their ‘Egg Tulip Bunny’ image which I just love! I had the best time creating this card!

I dug out an Easter paper pack that I won several years ago and used a few coordinating prints. I layered all the elements on either green cardstock or patterned paper from another gorgeous paper pack. Sure do love my paper, lol! This card definitely needed one of my signature big bows so I added some looped twine behind it. I stamped a fun sentiment on a stitched flag and added some flat-back pearls to complete the front.

Using Glossy Accents, I ‘glossified’ (probably not even a real word, lol) all the Easter eggs on one of the layered pieces. This gave those eggs a nice shine. ;)

I decorated the inside with some leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front, and stamped an Easter greeting.
