HAPPY EASTER…...

SO the color challenge this week was So Saffron, Pool Party, and Sahara Sand.  The SUO Challenge Blog challenge was EASTER.  Now doesn't that just go hand in hand?  Actually, dessert on the color challenge is ALSO Easter…..so I HAD to make an Easter card! Now, what does this card have to do with the TRUE meaning of Easter??? Not a lot,,,,,but Easter eggs are part of our celebrations, and I had fun thinking outside the box when I made this card.  After all, I have used those tulips that were intended for Easter SO MANY TIMES I thought, I HAVE to come up with something DIFFERENT… and I was just in the mood for some egg salad. :) I used the top note die cut for the bottom of my basket, and folded it in half.  I used the egg from Backyard Basics…. this was FUN!  And look ma, NO FLOWERS!!! Look Peggy, NO FLOWERS!!! :) (My SCS buddy Peggy teases me about flowers being the only thing I stamp!)  NOT ONE FLOWER on this card! I love Easter, and God has been doing some amazing things in the lives of my loved ones lately…..so I am really looking forward to celebrating new life in JESUS at Easter this year! :) He is RISEN!! He is RISEN indeed - and HE is alive and well, and still changing lives today!! Happy Easter everyone!! Until next time, Karen

Awesome card!! Such gorgeous details. This must have taken forever to put together - but well worth it all. What DSP did you use? Love how you cut some out to make your border. Such a clever idea. Reall, really neat card!!
