ODBDSLC58, C4C84 Happy Easter....and more!

Happy Easter weekend everyone!

I hope you will get to spend this wonderful holiday with your family. We are staying home and we'll enjoy going to church and watching the girls participating in the *Easter Egg Hunt*...love watching them...LOL!

It's time again for a new ODBD Shining Light ~ ODBDSLC58 Challenge. Chris has created this awesome Sketch for us to try and I hope you'll have a chance to play along. Please note this challenge will last 2 weeks!!!

I also added this weeks C4C84 theme to my card which is to create a *Easter* card. Please stop by the C4C blog to check out all the fab ideas the *Crazies* had.


Here is my idea...I flipped the layout to the side.



I told you I'm in the *purple* mood lately.....and I just had to use it on this card again. The DP is from the PTI Guide Lines Collection and so is the Ribbon as well as the CS I used to punch out the MS Butterflies. The tag was created with the ODBD Tag Die. I added the Fleur de Lis Border Set and the sentiment from the Daffodil Tag Set. To finish the card off I added the the PTI Medium Scalloped Border which I scored, the Prima Flowers and the Silver Pearls...voila!

Please make sure to check out the ODBDSLC team for their gorgeous ideas on the Sketch ~ Sabrina, Chris, FranciePat and please help us say farewell to our March/April Guest Designer Lori.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend and please remember the true meaning of this holiday! Hugs ~S~
