Easter Blessings

I'm honored to once again be guest designing for CropStop. Now's the time to be working on Easter cards & for today's card I used my new Freida Curve Poppystamps die.  Isn't it beautiful?!
First the die cut was spritzed with Heidi Swapp Ocean Color Shine & then I painted over the leaves with Distress Stain bundled sage.  
I masked the Impression Obsession sentiment so I could gold emboss just the 2 words.  The die cut is layered onto another one cut from white cardstock to give just a bit of dimension.  I really love the combination of gold & pastels, so will use these colors together again.  I'm entering PoppystampsDies R Us & HLS Anything Goes with Dies.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
