DCBD122 and CTD37 and Easter!

Hi! Today's card is another combined challenge card. If I don't combine them, I don't get to play in as many as I want! Plus, when someone tells you what colors to use and what sketch to do, it makes it soooooo much easier to create! The colors for this card come from the Color Throwdown CTD37 blog. I love the color combos they come up with here are this weeks colors:

They are Cameo Coral, Sage Shadow, and Pink Piouette. Very pretty together and I would never have thought of it on my own!

The sketch is from yesterday's challenge over at Splitcoaststampers SC223.

And finally, I love playing in the Diva Coffee Break Design challenges because they do current Stampin' Up! only stuff. And you know how much I love Stampin' Up! They challenge this week DCBD122 is to use your Big Shot to make your card. I used the Daisies #2 Bigz die that makes a gorgeous flower when layered. Here's my card:

I really love how this turned out! I think I'll give it to my MIL for Mother's Day. You can't tell from this pic, but I also added texture to the leaves using my SU! Texturz Plates. The leaves are from the SU! Birds and Blooms die set. I love that SU! has so many exclusive dies. The DSP is from Candy Lane and the pearls and hat pin are from the Pretties Kit. The sentiment is from All Holiday's.

These next cards I made for my week of Easter projects. I made 14 of these and sent them to family and friends. I love the SAB Delicate Dots DSP and have some left. I used it for these cards:

The cross is from Refuge and Strength, the sentiment is from All Holiday's. The leaves are cut using the SU! Little Leaves Sizzlet and the flowers are punched with the Trio Flowers punch. The Scallop Oval punch is new from the Occasions Mini. Don't forget about the great promotion Stampin' Up! has going on during the month of April. Purchase $40 from the Occasions Mini Catalog and choose one free "under $10" item from page 208 of the Spring-Summer Idea Book and Catalog. Free is always good!

Have a great day!
Happy Stamping!
