Happy Easter

So here is the card I made and sent to several family members for Easter. It is so amazing that "God gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall have everlasting life" John 3:16. I pulled out an oldie but goodie here -Stamps by Judith. The card is based on the Sketch 48 Bonus Sketch from 2Sketches4You. The Judith stamps are the basket, easter eggs and butterfly. I also used Mega Mixed Messages for the sentiment on the front and Everyday Blessings for the sentiment on the inside; both by Papertrey Ink. I tried a new technique for creating grass my friends Melissa & Alicia learned at a Copic class. It turned out not too bad. I'd also like to point out the glittering easter eggs below the card. I made those! I found a container of 8 wooden eggs at Hobby Lobby for 50% off. I then painted them (several coats ugh!) and then glittered them all up with Modge Podge. I also painted a wooden bird house and glittered it as well which sits on top of the eggs. It's a cute fun center piece.
