Blingy Springtime

Hi everyone!  Today I am showing you a card I created for our fourth challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous.  Can you believe that we are up to challenge four already?!  Time certainly flies when you are having fun.  Gloria is challenging us to create a project that includes sparkle, glitz or glam from our hoard.  Our sponsor for the month is the wonderful company Graphic 45.  They are such a great company and their paper and staples are to die for!


I chose to make an Easter card with a digital vintage Easter tag I had purchased a while ago from a very creative lady on Etsy.  You can find her shop here.  I used papers for the card itself from Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments collection.  The flowers are mulberry paper flowers that I also purchased from Etsy.  The doily, linen, lace, pearls, and seam binding ribbon are all from my hoard and I have had them for several years.  I thought this would be the perfect time to put them to good use.  I inked all the paper edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The cardstock is Grapesicle and Whip Cream cardstock from MFT.  I added some sparkle to the flowers on the tag with Stickles.

Please head on over to the blog and see the other amazing inspiration from the DT members, and of course join in the fun!

This is so sweet and nostalgically vintage (is that a word?!). I adore the colors and the softness of the design.
