Post Easter

 I can hardly believe it's been a week since I last posted. This week did not go as planned. Last Monday I sat down to do one more Easter card because I had printed this image and instead of filing it away, I thought I should just make a card from it. I started the card and it just didn't click for me and set it aside to start a different one (which also didn't click) and I was never able to get back to my desk last week. So after having the twins all day today and finishing dinner I decided to revisit this Easter card and finally finished it.

The image is from Eureka Stamps called Lilly Cross. I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and die cut the image with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangles (retired).  I struggled with the paper that I wanted to use with it, but finally decided on this plaid paper from my stash. Then I cut the paper incorrectly which actually turned out to be okay as I really like the break in the plaid. It gives it some interest. The sentiment was a freebie from Desert Diva. I die cut it with Spellbinder's Grommet Tags and inked it with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. To hide the grommet cut outs I added 2 pearls. The card base is blue and the layering is dark brown. It might have taken me a week but I am happy with the finished product. I am entering these challenges:
It rained all day here and was chilly, so we parked the cards outside and let the twins play in the garage. We had lots of fun today. We bought some Play-Doh so they got to play with that. They wore us out and I'll be glad to see our bed very soon. Hope you had a lovely weekend. Stay safe! Peace and all good!

This is such a beautiful card Donna! I love the cross image and the plaid background looks great!
At our age kids can wear us out quickly but sounds like you all had lots of fun!

Lovely card Donna. Sometimes errors turn out for the best in the end.
I'm having a week like yours this week which is why I'm later commenting on your card than I normally would. Fortunately I had some cards finished or almost finished that I have been able to upload and not make it look like I have vanished off the face of the earth!
