Happy Easter Again!!!

 Here are maybe the last Easter cards for 2014 - then again who knows???  It's sad when customers need them as flat as possible to post but they are just the height of the card candi so will go through the thin slot for Royal Mail.

I posted some cards on Monday using a Delicious Doodles "Daffodils 2" image but this time I have used the "Daffodils 2" image along with one of Teri's framed images and this one is called "Daffodils and Butterfly".  I love these framed images as once you colour them in, add a sentiment you don't have to do a lot more as the image tells the story.
I have coloured both digital images with Promarkers, distressed around the edge with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint distress ink.
 The backing papers I have used this time are Bearly Mine Designs Mini Dots, Plain and Simple, Gingham and the newly released Simply Stripes (love these ones - they will be so useful).  With the bottom Mini Dots layer I distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then inked with Tim Holtz's Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint distress ink.

The first card has been finished off with a stamped sentiment, Stickles glitter glue, die-cut butterfly, ribbon bow, card candi and little die-cut butterflies from a Joanna Sheen butterfly confetti die.

The second card has been finished with a stamped sentiment, Stickles glitter glue, ribbon bow, card candi  and little die-cut butterflies from a Joanna Sheen butterfly confetti die.
