Where There Is Hope

Sparkle N Sprinkle recently released a new set of stamps called Celebrate Life.  It has some lovely Spring/Easter images and today’s card features the image Lamb & Chicks.  The image is heat embosses with White Detail Embossing Powder on vellum inside an oval frame created with an embossing folder.  I used a stylus on the back to bring out white in the embossed frame and lamb image.  I used markers and a Dove Blender to add color to the front.  This is layered on pink and green layers and all corners are rounded.  The card base is created using designer cardstock with pink polkadots cut out with a Spellbinders’ Grand Labels Four Die.

For embellishments I added a thin yellow multi-loop satin bow and a pink silk flower.  I used SNS Brushable Glue to add Green Nugget Glitter to a Fanciful Flourish die cut, cut it in several pieces, and tucked these around the flower.  I used SNS Dimensional Glue to add a floral button to the center of the flower.  The sentiment is from the Easter Wishes Set and is heat embossed with Moss Embossing Powder.  I finished by adding 4 pink jewels to the left side of the card.

It is supposed to warm up again by the end of the week and lots of spring flowers and bushes are starting to bloom.  I love this time of year!!

Have a blessed Sunday,

E. Marie
