Trefoil Cross Easter Card

Happy Easter! My family will have to forgive me this year for neglecting to send them Easter cards. I was in a car wreck the end of January that totaled my vehicle and my back has been hurting ever since. It makes it hard to sit at my craft desk for long periods of time and therefore I only made a couple of Easter cards this year. I guess I'll send everyone a link to this Trefoil Cross Easter Card to let them know I was thinking about them.

Most of the supplies for this card are by Stampin' Up!. The two exceptions are the Spellbinders oval die and the Easter Sentiment by Studio G. I tend to always use a mix of retired and new supplies when making a card. The Trefoil Cross is retired but it's one of my favorites and I stamped it using Blackberry Bliss ink. A new patterned paper from the Occasions Catalog was used on the bottom, it's called Painted Blooms and I paired it with the retired Daffodil Delight polka dot from the Designer Series Paper Stack. The Wild Wasabi paper strip was embossed using the Fancy Fan embossing folder and I added a punched butterfly with a three pearls for detail. That's it!

I'm entering this Trefoil Cross Easter Card in the following challenges:
