My mind was going in two different directions with ideas on what I wanted to do so I created cards using both ideas.
Here's my first card:
I used Mat Stack #4 die and the word JOY from Holiday Double Cuts to create the focal point. I inked the background using the Hello Sunshine coordinating die. I cut a stencil from a piece of acetate and stenciled in the sun rays using Tim Holtz Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. I stamped some corner flourishes and finished it off with some pretty Easter Lilies that I colored with copics.
For this card, I used Mat Stacks #1 die and the bird from Songbirds to create the focal point. The sentiment is from Bitty Bouquet and Petite Pots. I raised the front panel using some fun foam to give this card some dimension. A stamped banner from Songbirds and a layered flower from Happiness in bloom finish it off.
I'm also entering one of these cards into the following challenges:
