RRCB82~Two Step Stampin UP Easter Egg

 I made this card today for my etsy shop.  I had a request for Easter cards.  I then realized that the stampin up set I was using was an older one which made me think of
This particular stampin up set is from 2000 and is a two step Easter egg set.  I honestly didn't know what to choose on the tic tac toe board..but I finally headed in the direction of the far right column.  Embossing, green, and vellum.   First off let me say I'm never quite sure how to play, because should I just stick with all green or may I use other colors.  Well folks I chose to incorporate a rainbow of colors but made sure green was on the card both the outside and inside, and much to my surprise I had a super small piece of vellum in my paper stash.  I never use the stuff because I'm not sure how to work with it well, and then glue it down is also another problem, hence the ribbon today to cover up the adhesive.  For embossing I used the polka dots folder for the background. 
I also made a few other cards for my shop today.  So I thought I'd share them here on my blog along with the beautiful flowers I got today.  I love daisies, however the sign said that these are mums, but they look like daisies to me, and they just make me happy.  Now I have to figure out how to take care of them.   I also wanted to mention that the one card below is a dogwood flower and it has such a neat Easter meaning..because the flowers look like a cross.  My Dear Aunt Ann had these metal dogwood flowers above her organ keyboard.  I'm now the owner of these and keep them in my Bible Study room.  I think these cards will also work well for my SCS post.   

  Thank you for taking time to stop by and leave a comment.  I'd love to have you sign up and follow my blog.

Has anyone else noticed a little less activity on their blogs lately?  Perhaps it's the nice weather, or Perhaps it's just my blog.
 Keep Smiling and Keep Stamping.
