I hope you are having a terrific week! It is spring break for us here so we are on a little family vacation to see D.C. I am posting from my iPad - I hope this works.
Today I am sharing another Easter card. I used this beautiful paper as my focal point and my Spellbinders to create a base for the sentiment. The sentiment stamp is from Mypinkstamper. Some light and airy ribbon, a few rhinestones on the butterfly and there you go.
Enjoy the rest of your week!

I hope that you are enjoying your weekend. I've been really busy with work lately, but I wanted to take a moment to share this card with you. This is a sympathy card that I made for a close family friend who recently lost her husband. I hope she finds some comfort in knowing that we are all thinking of her.
The card base is made from kraft card stock, I then layered it with this beautiful paper from DCWV Garden Party Stack, and the lace border was made with my EK Success border bunch. The ribbon is from Michaels. I added two sweet Prima flowers and dressed them up with an antique brad from Stampin-up. I stamped the K. Andrews sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink from Stampin-up. I also used two other sentiments from this K. Andrews sympathy set on the inside. I made the envelope using my Martha Stewart score board, This is the first time I made an envelope with the corner tool. It was easier than I expected. I will definitely use this more often! The dimensions are slightly larger so there is plenty of room for a card with some dimension. I also lined the envelope with some pretty paper from the K&Co Designer paper stack to make it a little more special.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
