Happy Friday!

     Today I would like to share  a monochromatic Easter card I created.  It was made with the February Kit of the Month from Unity, called "Grow into Spring".  I guess that is what we are slowly doing, after this crazy winter nonsense. 

 
List of supplies:

Lots of blue scraps of  designer papers
Embossing folder by Darcie's
Fanciful Flourish die from Cheery Lynn
Pacific Point ink from SU!
Scallop punch from SU!
Blue pearls from Queen & Co.
Stamps by Unity

     I would like to link this up on the blog page for this weeks Friends with Flair.


     There is also a new challenge I found, called Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #2, which is a color challenge, this time.  There is a twist to show what you hoard the most of, so here goes:

 
My name is Mary Anne, and I am a paper hoarder.  But just look, I used them, didn't I?  Have a great weekend!

This is a beautiful card with that printed bunny. Your banners, flourish and circle embellishments all help to make a very sweet entrance into spring. Admitting your addiction is the first step. Good Girl - I'm proud of you. I wouldn't know because I am not a paper hoarder.
LOL !!!!! Enjoy the sunshine today.
