Easter Joy!

I wanted to use Easter colors today, because they make me feel joyful.  So that is what inspired this card....

I started by creating my background.  I used Tim Holtz distress inks with glossy card stock.  I swiped the mini stamp pads across the paper, then turned it 90 degrees and swiped them again, alternating colors as I swiped.  These dried super quick.  

On black card stock, I cut the Impression-Obsession Die 152-N along the left edge.  I lined the back with some of the background I had created.  

I black-embossed the lilies, cross, and Rejoice from the Impression-Obsession MC73 Easter Lily clear set onto the background paper, then cut it into the shape of an Easter egg.  I mounted it to the card with craft foam, and added a pretty purple ribbon.

Easy-peasy, but I like the way it came out.  

I am entering my card in these challenges:

Impression-Obsession - Pick A Holiday

Make My Monday - Easter Fun

Sunday Stamps - Easter palette
