For a little inspiration, I've created an Easter card with a super sneaky little peek at a sentiment from the soon to be released Risen Savior stamp set! I pulled out some St. Tropez papers by Prima for this shabby chic card and used a piece of ephemera also from the St. Tropez collection. It had a bit of wording in the center, so I covered that with gesso and then stamped the sentiment in the center.  Lots of distressing, a bit of ribbon and thread, and a sneaky peek at a new border die set, too!

And a little shout-out to just a few of the lovely cards that have caught my eye in the past couple weeks.
