A Spoonful of Sugar Willow

The challenge at Spoonful of Sugar is to use gems in your card. I used the most beautiful light pink gems as the centers of the blossoms used in this Easter card. All the papers used are Making Memories and I just love the colors of these papers.

I colored Kneeling Willow with my Prismacolored Markers and twinkling H2Os on the lace, bow and shoes. I tried to match the colors found in the paper and just wanted a bit of shimmer. The top flower is made using 2 of the flowers from the Pretties Kit from SU. I painted them with the Twinkling H2O Pink Cloud to have them match the paper and image.

These bottom flowers are made using the three flowers punch from SU and using the circle cutter from Creative Memories for the pink bg. Two different sizes of gems were used as the center. The pink ribbon is from Martha Stewart.

I am so proud of the inside of this card. This is the first time I made a tag for the inside of the card. I used the long rectangle scalloped nestibility to create the tag. The Alota sentiment stamp is done using Regal Rose SU ink. I used a flower green brad to hold the ribbon to the tag.

I am pleased with the way this card turned out. I have 11 Easter cards done only 9 to go. This is one of my favorites so far. The boys came home from Halifax without a trophy but lots of memories. Today they are both moving a tad slow...sleep is only important when they have to get up for school.
My husband arrived back with oodles of goodies from my favorite store...Carousel Rubber Stamp Store in Dartmouth N.S. He brought me distress stickles, 4 Thomas Kincade stamps and spica pens and more goodies. I am one happy babe who must leave you now to Stamp. So many stamps so little time.
