Happy Easter at My Craft Spot!

Happy Monday, my sweet friends! I hope you had a blessed weekend. :o)

Somehow Easter is only a couple of weeks away! Our challenge this week at My Craft Spot is Happy Easter, so I hope you'll prepare for this beautiful holiday with us. :o)

I made an Easter card for my family. :o)
Purple again... I know! ;) Just like my Easter box last week, I reached for my beloved Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments paper collection for this creation. These are my other favorites in the stack, which I've been anxious to use. 

The pretty sugar egg is a cut file from the Silhouette Online Store. Isn't it sweet?
Instead of using the little eggs in the cut file, I used the precious speckled egglets from My Craft Spot's Stamping All Around Spring 2 set. I stamped them in varying shades of pearlescent Dew Drop Brilliance ink and nestled the sweetheart within them. My sentiment is from Tiny Tags 2, which I've cut out with the coordinating Tiny Tags Metal Dies. It is between pretty layers of buttercup crinkle ribbon and a white rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. I made two tiny flourishes with Recollections pearls to mimic the bow.

For extra texture, I added ruffly lace and topped it with tiny pom pom trim to coordinate with the detailing in the egg cut file.
You have an entire week to link up your Easter projects, so I hope you'll play along! I look forward to seeing your inspiring work. :o) Be sure to hop on over to My Craft Spot to see the lovely contributions from my teamies! Thank you for visiting and I wish you a sparkly day! :o)
