Time to Sale A Brate Easter!

Hi Stampers! Boy did I have fun making this little sweetie!
It is hard to tell in the picture, but the card base is sahara sand. The background panel is from delicate dots designer series paper. This is a really nice set of designer series paper....it is excellent for anything spring or summer! I stamped the flourish only from the "something for you" stamp in the Yummy stamp set in basic grey. This particular stamp was designed to fit on the edge of the top note die...but doesn't it look wonderful on a card front? I then pulled out my all holidays set and grabbed the Easter Wishes stamp and stamped it in basic grey as well. I matted it in a thin layer of certainly celery and then onto the card base. I then tied a simple knot with the celery poly twill ribbon around the top. I love the poly twill ribbon...you would think it would be thick since it is twill...but it isn't...it is so smooth and shiny....LOVE it! The horizontal panel started with a layer of bashful blue, which I ran through my big shot using the dots texturz plate from the exclusive Stampin' Up texturz. I then layered that with a thin layer of certainly celery as well.

Now for those flower panels....did I pass these off as- sort of - kind of - maybe a - daffodil???? Probably not...but that was the inspiration I had since it was an Easter card....lol! Anyway, I stamped the celery leaves and outline from botanical blooms on the white squares and mounted those onto stampin' dimensionals along the blue panel. I then stamped the half flower and outline in so saffron, also from botanical blooms. I cut them out and mounted them on stampin' dimensionals as well.

Ok...so let's do a recap.
