Easter or Spring challenge at Sentimental Sundays

Happy Sunday!  After our little snow storm earlier this week, Mother Nature has turned around and brought Spring back with sunshine and warmer weather...the poor plants and outdoor life must all be in shock LOL!

Today at Sentimental Sundays we have a challenge to make a card (with a sentiment of course) focused on Easter or Spring.  Here's what I came up with.

The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, available at the Whimsy store.  The flowers and ribbon are from my stash (the foliage came wrapped around a gift bag--talk about recycling) and the butterfly is from an SU die.

This month we are celebrating Earth Day, I hope you will find time to plant something, maybe a tree!


  1. Beautiful card. Loving that butterfly and all the texture on the card.

    Personally, while I normally will do some planting by Earth Day (Friday), I think I'll wait a few weeks this year.

  2. OH wow so beautiful, those daisies look so realistic!!!

    Its amazing!

  3. Wow - this is gorgeous! Those daisies look like the REAL thing!!!

    (Oops...just noticed the poster above me said it, too! I swear I did not copy her comment! LOL!)

  4. Gorgeous and I love the daisies!!!!

  5. Beautiful card! I love the daisies!

  7. Great card and love the butterfly :)

  8. Perfect card for spring! The daisies are so fun, they almost look real. Very pretty! :)

  9. This is so classy. Love the Daisies - they really "pop" out from the card and look so realistic.Thank you for joining us at Sentimental Sundays this week. Hugs, Sylvia x

  10. What a stunning card. I love the embossing you did with the nesties. I have tried this many times and just can't seem to get it right. It either does not emboss or it cuts out the shape, lol. Yours came out absolutely perfect!

  11. a fantastic blooming card!

    GREAT job!

    hugs and kisses from germany,
