Quick Easter Card

Hello! The next couple of days I'll be making several Easter cards to get them in the mail on time. Life just got busy the last couple of weeks and I didn't spend much time in my craft room. I do send out several, so I'll need Quick Easter Cards like this one.

To create this card I used the layout from this weeks challenge at Sketch Saturday. The digital image from Deedee's Digis (shop closed) came pre-colored, which saved some time. The image was die cut with a rectangle stitched die from Lil' Inkers and matted to a slightly larger piece of purple cardstock. Using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set from Stampin' Up! the butterflies were stamped onto Crushed Curry cardstock, punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch and accented with Basic Pearls. The Happy Easter sentiment was stamped using the Crazy About You stamp set by Stampin' Up! and punched using a 1 1/4" circle punch and then matted to a slightly larger pink scalloped circle. All patterned paper is from DCWV, the Girl Fille paper stack. Before adhering the patterned paper panel, some twine was wrapped around three times and secured to the back with tape. The card was assembled and that's it!

This Quick Easter Card is entered into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
