Easter Wishes

Hi there,
I hope everyone is enjoying Easter long weekend!

Here it is:










Thanks again, Dana for your great Bow-tying tutorial....my second attempt turned out great as well, LOVE this technique!!!

This Easter card is absolutely gorgeous, Naomi! I love the colours and the way you've decorated the inside and an envelope to match. Lovely work!

You did a great job on this challenge, I really like the image and how you finished the inside and the envelope.

It's because it IS really pretty Naomi! You should be proud of this creation... and of course it's a MOJO Sketch to boot!

Trina

What great use you made of that big print! I have that paper pack and am thrown by how to make those bigger, scrapbook-sized prints work on cards. This is fabulous!

Naomi

Thanks, everyone, for all of the kind words!
Thanh, I realized that I hadn't mentioned the mojo sketch, it's the same one I used in my previous card post. I edited the post to add that :)

What a beautiful card! I'm always afraid to put different patterns/textures/colors together because I'm so terrible at matching! Everything matches so perfectly on your card! Btw, I found you on the Outlawz!
