I know we are past Easter, but I wanted to share with you the cards that I made to give to my family.  It was so refreshing to make spring cards with spring colors after the harsh winter we had.  Even Easter was cold and damp, blech.  We have finally moved onto some sun and warmer weather and I am grateful for the change.

My first card uses an image from Aurora's Wings.  She has such beautiful images and this one isn't any exception.  The image is called Calla Lily Sprite and she is just beautiful.  I absolutely love Calla Lilies, especially since they were the flower I had in my bouquet at my wedding.  And, as you can see from my image, they were yellow and white.  I colored in a more light hand with this one, which I don't often do, but I absolutely love the way this image came out!

I colored my image using copic markers and embellished it with Wild Orchid Flowers.  Amazingly enough I had some Calla Lilies in my stash so I added them as well.  I used Cheery Lynn dies for my flourish embellishment, a Fiskars Punch for my foliage and some pretty sparkle embellishments from Michael's.  Her eyes have Glossy Accent on them.  I really love to make eyes sparkle.

My next two cards use Saturated Canary images, as you know another favorite shop of mine!  The images I used for these cards are Egg Hunt and Duck, Duck, Goose.  You can't have Easter without some really adorable Easter images!

More Copics, Wild Orchid Flowers and Fiskars punch for this one.  I also used a Spellbinder's die and a few Recollections flowers from Michael's again.  Those are the ones with the sequins and shine.  I can't help it, I really love my BLING!

Copics, Wild Orchid and Prima flowers, Spellbinder's die, Cheery Lynn Designs flourish die and a Martha Stewart border punch for this cutie.  A few pearls as well.  I know you can see the glue on the pearls but I was too busy to let the glue dry before I took the picture.  The eyes have some glossy accents.  I had trouble with her hair and kept playing at it until at least I found it tolerable.

I hope you are having a good end to your week!
Thanks so much for stopping by,
