I generally don't do Easter cards but I have a stamp, I already owe someone a card and the planets are in alignment. I never planned to get an Easter stamp but I couldn't resist last year's chocolate bunny from Stampin' Up. I wish I could have stamped the sentiment but I have no "Easter" stamps, no letters small enough, and at this hour of night, no wish to wake anyone with the printer (a bit odd but it's in our bedroom... a remnant of our move and it's still lacking a good home so it stays in the place it landed- on my grandmother's cedar chest.)
I first made the card with the gemstones but wasn't wild about them- a bit too glittery for the look of it all. It occurred to me that pink pearls would be nice but I told my 3yr old to put them back on the rack yesterday at Michaels because I have no use for them. Figures. Then I remembered that you can use Copics to color pearls and gems. Perfect! The funny thing is there's a challenge that opened today to color your own embellishments with Copics. Perfect!! :)
Pearls: This one is my fav. I'm going to try to snag a better picture in daylight tomorrow.
Gems: I like it but the gems are too sparkly for the rest of it.
