Easter Time To Celebrate

Hi all ! I mentioned the last time I posted that it was suppose to snow after the day before being very warm, or did I say hot. Well sure enough it did snow and then we had sleet. This weather has been unbelievable and it is my guess that that is why everyone around here has had the flu or some kind of awful upper respiratory virus. My entire family has had it with the exception of me. I guess it is because I take SO many vitamins. Who knows, I am just glad I haven't gotten the bug. Sorry for all of you that have had it as it seems that most of our blogging friends have been sick with it.

I ended up taking this pic outside because even with my photo tent it just did not show the detail. I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder which I got from Eclectic Paperie. I am gonna love using this one on a lot of cards. On top of this I used my decorative scissors to cut and detail the band across the middle. I used the Circle Nestabilities which I won in a contest from Flourishes to stamp my three Easter eggs that I bought from High Hopes Stamps. I colored the eggs with my Copic Glitter Pens. I then used my Oval Nestabilities for the sentiment which came from Many Sentiments from Flourishes. The flower is from SU's Pretties Kit and I colored it with Certainly Celery using my SU markers. The Butterfly Crystal is from....dunno. I am quite sure it was in a bag of other colored butterflies that I bought from Michael's. This card really looks so much better in person. Click and you can see the details.

Thanks so much for your visit :)

I say this card is "egg-strodinary." I love the fresh minty green color. I love the scissor cut out. You did a good job using the copic markers. I would not know where to begin, but you make it seem effortless.
