Easter Blessings

Time4Scrap has a new challenge for you, beginning today.  This two week challenge is to create an Easter themed project.  The two sponsors for the challenge are Robyn's Fetish and A Day for Daisies.

I've chosen the Lily Wedding image from A Day for Daisies.  Although Easter lilies are mostly white, I've added touches of soft yellows for shading (it's really hard to tell in the photo) and greens for the throat.  Sparkle N Sprinkle flock (Canary) was added to the yellow anthers in the flower center for a more realistic look.  (You are supposed to remove these on a real plant to prolong the life of the plant. )

The dies used are mostly from Spellbinders (Timeless Rectangle for the mats and the cross is from the Cross Collection) and a Simon Says Stamp die was used to die cut the computer generated sentiment.  While the cross was still in the die, I smushed VersaMark through the openings and then heat set it with Silver Pearl embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I also added a few pearls here and there.  The card base was dry embossed with Spellbinders Dainty Dots embossing folder.

Be sure to visit the blog at Time4Scrap to see what the rest of the team has created for you.

Anne, Another one of you fabulous cards! I want to thank you for all you support and nice comments you have made. With all that is going on now my laptop computor is giving me problems. It will be nice to be home. But I will be another couple weeks. I think her spirit is better and she is not as down as she was.
Hug, Pat
