Crafty Secrets Design Team Spring Fling Challenge

Good morning! I hope you all had a Wonderful weekend!! Today is Crafty Secrets Challenge Day. Our Design Team Coordinator, Vicki Chrisman gave us a challenge this month to create a card or project with a Spring or Easter theme. I created an Easter Card for the challenge and I can't wait to see what the other ladies on the Crafty Secrets Design Team have created! I will have a link list at the bottom of this post so you can visit each of the blogs.Here is the card I created. I absolutely love the Angel image!! It is so Beautiful and perfect for Easter. I started with the base of the card, the designer paper is from the Crafty Secrets Classic Paper Pad and I stamped flourishes on it using gold ink and gold embossing powder. The flourish stamp is from the Crafty Secrets Cherubs stamp set. The flowers that I added are actually stickers from the Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Stickers Greetings & Sentiments sticker sheet. I used a Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star glitter pen to add some sparkle to the floral images. I wanted to add some dimension to the sticker but before doing so I needed to remove the stickiness from the backside. I used a paintbrush to dust over the stickers with baby powder. Doing this will take away to stickiness and then I added foam mounting tape to the backside. The image of the angel is from the Crafty Secrets Seasonal Images & Journal Notes booklet and I added some sparkle to the angel using the Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star glitter pen. To diecut the angel image and the background mat I used the Wizard™ and Labels Four S4-190 die templates from Spellbinders™.I made this diecut cross for an embellishment on the card. To create the cross I used the Wizard™ and the Cross Collection S4-265 die templates from Spellbinders™. I also used Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star glitter pen & Metallic Gold pen to accent and add sparkle to the cross. For a finishing touch I added a few rhinestones from My Mind's Eye and lavender ribbon. Supplies~
