Easter easel card

I hope everyone is enjoying this first day of spring more than I am. I am sick with allergies and sinus infection so I'm not feeling well. I did manage to finish this card I started last night. I'm sharing it in a few challenges.

Paper Sundaes is asking for a multifold easter or spring card. I have been meaning to try the easel card for a while. I think I'm hooked! This was easier than I thought and so pretty. The layout of my card front is the sketch from Midnight Madness #45. This is the first time I've played there. My image is a digi from Digital Stamp Oasis.






Stamp: Digital Stamp Oasis; sentiment- Inkadinkado
Paper: BasicGrey wisteria
Tools: Nestabilities; Martha Stewart punch; Prismacolor pencils
Accents: Making Memories and Prima flowers, pearls

This card was submitted for the following additional challenges:

Pile it on: Pastels

The Pink Elephant - Spring

I Love Digi - Easter

A Spoonful of Sugar - Easter

PaperTake- lilac and lemon
