When I saw today's Basic Grey Challenge for Spring/Easter, I immediately thought of the Phresh & Phunky papers. The sketch was inspired by my friend, Amy Sheffer, who posted this card today. I had just a small rectangle of the polka dot, so I layered it on white, leaving a thin border. Then I layered it on green Bazzil, and scalloped the edge with my SU! border punch. I always use dots with stripes, and I found a stripe scrap and mounted the same way. Now for a background...I chose the plaid, pierced, and used a white gel pen for faux stitching. I layered on white, then the base card (green Bazzill.)
I picked up the white pearls ("Rhinestone Stickers") earlier this week from Michael's. Eager to use them, I added one to each scallop.
Now for the sentiment??? I found a "happy easter" rub-on in my stash by Creative Imaginations. The BG Phresh & Phunky has tags included with the papers. I chose this circle tag, used the rub-on, layered on white and green Bazzill, then used Stampin' Up! dimensionals to pop it up. It still needed something. I found the purple flower (Jolee's Boutique) and added one more white pearl (Rhinstone Sticker). Still not enough. I asked dh his opinion. He said, "How about those Bazzill flowers I bought you for Mother's Day? I think they are too big though." I was so proud of him!!! He was right, the Bazzill flowers were too big, but I did find this smaller pink flower (Prima) that LFL (Lovely Friend Lauren Bergold sent me for my birthday. Thanks, dh and Lauren! It was just what the card needed :)
