Maybe the 5:00 mojo is what it is all about......

Hey everyone!  I got up again today at 5:00 to create some goodness to share.....I KNOW - what is up with this????

I want to start out by saying that I am definitely not the originator of the two ideas that I haev combined on my little beauty today.....but I did need to combine the two for an Easter card for someone who hasn't forgotten that it isn't all about the bunny.  Jesus is also the reason for this season.

Wanna see what I did today?  okay

Well, you like?

I was really pleased with the final outcome.  However - this card is not mailable....sorry post office :(  But I will definitely hand deliver this baby.

I cut the cross with my big shot ans the square lattice die.  A couple of snips and viola - a cross!  I adhered that to a piece of whisper white that had also met the big shot this morning through the vintage wall paper embossing folder....this is my favorite folder, for sure.  I did sponge some bashful blue on the raised ares to kind of give the feeling of sky with out being totally blue.

Wanna closer look at the flower swag that I attached to the cross?

I did actually construct this just like you would make a real swag....It was completely put together and the adhered as one piece to the cross.  The greenery was a combination of the little leaves sizzlet and the branch from the bird punch.  The calla lilies - can you give a guess where they may have come from????

If you guessed a circle punch - you are...........wrong :) 

They are punched out of the blossom petals punch.  I cut the pointy end off of the petal and rolled it up adhering a stamen....aka a sliver of daffodil delight....and a stem.....aka a sliver of old olive with mini glue dots.  Then I used a mini glue dot to adhere the flower together.

I adhered the flowers down onto the greenery and the made a bow from the 1/8th inch whisper white taffeta ribbon.  I adhered it to the card like it might be blowing in the breeze a bit......

It is hard to really see the dimension on this card...I realized that whiel I was typing up this I whipped the card down on my computer and snapped a picture fo it laying down.....sorry for the poor quality ;)

The sentiment is from Easter Blossoms.   I punched it out with the wide oval punch and then just hand cut a daffodil delight mat for around it. did I do?
