Yeah!  Can you believe it?? It is March!  Not that we had a bad winter or anything here in Missouri, but the thought of warmer days and longer days ahead (not to mention summers off) is so exciting!  I am doing my second (but really first official) Stampin' Up party this month for a friend and she requested an Easter card.  The Nature Walk eggs jumped out at me and after sifting though card galleries, this is what I settled on (for now)-
Everything used is Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.  The card base and 2 stamped panels are Naturals Ivory.  The larger panel is stamped with Inspired by Nature in Lucky Limeade and the edges are sponged with my favorite distressing ink.  This panel is mounted on the wonderful Calypso Coral CS.  The smaller panel is stamped twice with the adorable row of eggs from Nature Walk and is colored in with the Aqua Painter and Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Luck Limeade and Apricot Appeal ink.  The edges are also sponged and the panel is mounted on Lucky Limeade CS.  The right end of the Lucky Limeade is punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch by pulling the strip of paper up through the circle punch opening and punching the partial circle.  A Baker's twine bow (Sweet n Sassy Stamps) is tied and finished off with a So Saffron button.  The Happy Easter sentiment is stamped in Chocolate Chip and punched with the jewelry tag punch using the same technique as was used with the circle punch, above.  The other end of the sentiment panel was also punched this way.  the sentiment was tied to the button with embroidery floss. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Spring!
