Easter Card and ATC

Prior to leaving for Pomona last week I managed to finish my March ATC swap and an Easter card (actually made 2 of the cards).  I had to mail the ATCs before I left (and I did) and I wanted a card to post for today as I'm sure I won't get all my pics downloaded and edited for today's post.  I had time last week to work on these as my car was in the shop with some potential major problems (caught them before I lost the engine or was stranded on the road somewhere).  So, are you ready?

I have a card pinned that inspired this and I pretty much copied the design but not the colors.  I used a variety of products.

I did a lot of layering but I like to do that.  I think I should have used a different color for the chevron background but I did want bright colors.

Stamps: Journey Blooms BundleHope Rises, and Chevron Trail

Papers: Grape Fusion, Whip Cream, Bubble Gum, and Sweet Pear

Inks: Sweet Berry, Sweet Pear, Pool Play, Grape Fusion, Bubble Gum, Kiwi Slice, Black Licorice, Citrus Cooler and  Bubble Gum Silks

Rainbow Drops rhinestones

And now for my ATC....

I realized after I finished this that it has the same design/layout as last month's!  What a hoot!

I got a bit lazy in coloring so I used a set from the Decorative theme in our catalog.  But I did use a green Copic marker for the stems.

Stamps: Hope Rises and Brush Strokes

Paper: Sweet Pear, Lemon Grass, and Whip Cream

Dies: Border Details

Inks: Citrus Cooler, Oatmeal Cookie, Black Licorice, and Citrus Cooler Silk

Cut Rhinestones

I even managed to get a couple challenge cards completed last week but you'll have to come back for those.  Who knows when I'll get them posted but I'll have oodles to show you!
