OCC Sketch Blog & Our Creative Corner

I want to know if this has ever happened to you.  I woke up at 3:00 am this morning with a card design in my head, and I couldn't go back to sleep.  I ended up coming to my craft room and creating the card.  Well, if I'm tired by mid-afternoon, we'll all know why!!

The challenge over at Our Creative Corner was to think Easter.  I tend to send traditional cards for Easter, so I wanted my card to be something striking.  Have I ever told you that this is my favorite holiday?  I find huge comfort in my life every day knowing that Jesus is real and His resurrection was real.  This holiday is a precious reminder to me that I can live Easter every day of my life.

All products from this very simple card are CTMH.  Purple represents the royalty of Jesus.  White represents purity and life.

I also created another spring card using the sketch from OCC Sketch blog.  For this card, I used Cosmo Cricket paper and K&Company paper flowers.  I used a little glossy accents on my butterfly wings and top flower to add shine.
