Easter Eggs

Happy Sunday afternoon, everyone! I hope you are enjoying a day of worship and relaxing! :) It's been a pretty good day here, but we are getting ready for our church Easter Egg Hunt, so there is lots to be done. :)

I just love the sketch from this week's Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge, so I made a sweet purple Easter card using the sketch and some (semi-) new PTI goodies! If you haven't joined in and posted your card for the sketch challenge, there is still time! You have until I draw a winner tomorrow afternoon! Link to your card HERE!

For my card, I used the PTI stamp set called Egg Hunt. I just fell in love with this set as I LOVE Easter! I love it first for its meaning for us as a people broken by our sins! But I also adore Easter baskets, chocolate eggs, jellybeans, the WORKS! Fun bright colors, spring, everything! I began with a Lavender Moon card base and layered on a Plum Pudding rectangle. The spot that should have ribbon, according to our sketch challenge, actually has a strip of the new Basic Grey Kioshi patterned paper. I LOVE the new BG lines! But then, I knew I would. ;) If you look closely, you'll notice that there is a strip of Sticky Strip down the middle of the Kioshi, and that is glittered with Stampendous Lavender glitter. LOVE that beautiful, soft, SPARKLY color! This pastel glitter is light in color, but we also carry a darker Lavender Pearl Glitter in the store, too. The eggs are die-cut with the Egg die (also PTI), and I stamped the egg patterns in Vintage Cream. The eggs are accented with MORE Kioshi paper, Purple Burlap String (May Arts!), and Mint Green and Lilac Rhinestones. The sentiment is stamped onto a Kraft punched circle with Elegant Eggplant ink (SU).
