Happy Easter Lily Card!

I made this card for my hubby for Easter. It started out as a quick Easter card with a simple flower on it. Sure, just punch seven petals from the Blossom Petals Punch - sponge a little, put dots on them and stick them together with a few daffodil scraps in the middle. Hummm, didn't quite go that smoothly, but it all worked out!

I used the En Francais background stamp on the Crumb Cake piece. I love that stamp, but I kind of forget to use the background stamps now that we have the Embossing Folders.

Here's a close-up of the lily. It definitely makes this a no-envelope, not in the mail kind of card. But that's ok, it just went in the Easter basket!

And here's the tag, with the stamp from the All Holidays set. I used the small and large tag punches. And the ink color is Soft Suede (it made it more of a manly Easter card!). Actually I just love the vintage-y look of Soft Suede with Crumb Cake for ALL cards!!

I hope you have a wonderful Easter,
