Happy Easter

Happy April's Fools Day!!

It's the first day of the month and that means it is also
the day for a new challenge at Dies R Us (no foolin'
Our challenge theme is EASTER.

I recently received an order from Dies R Us
with this pretty 

It is a pretty and delicate die that I die cut twice,
once from white card stock and once from yellow card stock,
then paper pieced all those little yellow tulips in.
(I can use the  yellow frame for another project).
It was actually very easy, like fitting puzzle pieces.

I added an embossed background,
from white card stock and colored them in with Copics...easy!

using one of the 3 birdhouse from the set, stamped a sentiment,
added a bow and it was complete.

Make sure and visit the Dies R Us challenge blog to be
totally inspired by my teammates!

Diane what a perfectly beautiful Easter card. That was a lot of work piecing those little tulips around the edge of the die cut, but well worth it. I love the plaid birdhouse and the bow. Nice touches. Thanks so much for joining us for WWC112 at the Watercooler Wednesday blog.
