Happy Easter







I certainly hope that everyone is enjoying the Holiday with friends and or family. The kids and I had a fantastic time this evening as the only American guests at a Sicilian Baby Baptisimo!!! This was no small affair. Think wedding type festivities complete with a sit down Sicilian million course meal............ What a wonderful way to celebrate Easter!!
Something about this Lockhart image (Lilac in Pitcher) is very comforting to me. I have always thought that using something besides the basic flower vase to be very classy and chic. I mean seriously who would not want this bouquet of flowers sitting in the center of their table?? After I finished coloring my image, I didn't want to hide it with flower soft so I thought that adding just a touch would really bring out the little yellow flowers. I think I was right. Flower Soft is one of those products that can transform a so so card into a WOW card.

This card was inspired by the April Sketch Challenge over in the Susana's Custom Art and Card Design Group at Paper Craft Planet.

Don't you just love the family get togethers...I do. We had a big Italian feast yesterday at my in-laws..yummy!

speaking of yummy, this card is fantastic. I love your design layout which perfectly showcases this wonderfully shaded image. Love the Flower Soft addition too. What a great touch.

Gorgeous, sistah! The soft, sweet colors and beautifully colored image - just breathtaking! Love the subtle addition of the flower soft. I totally agree that covering all the flowers with flower soft would have taken away from your beautiful coloring!! This is a winner for sure!
