A Freshly Made Easter Card

Here is an Easter card based on this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

I stamped the eggs with pigment ink, heat embossed them with clear detail powder, and then after cutting them out, sponged around their edges with dye ink.  I cut two strips of grass using Close to My Heart's Artiste Cricut cartridge (page 73, .75 inches), flipped one, sponged the tips with Garden Green (retired) and layered them.  It doesn't show well in the photograph that I attached a Green Epoxy Bubble to the center of the button.  The sentiment is from the Some Bunny stamp set that is available only as a hostess reward.

Thank you for stopping by!  Now please go over to Freshly Made Sketches to see more interpretations of the sketch.  Until next time, Hansi
