Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge using Sweet N' Sassy Bluebird

Hello and  Happy Tuesday to you all!!!  Hope Everyone is having a great week in preparations for Easter.  Can you believe Easter is coming up so fast!  I guess with all the chaos of last week, I didn't realize it was pretty much here!  My kids are already bugging me about coloring eggs and Easter hunts so guess I'd better get prepared! And I know my family has a lot to be thankful in celebration of this blessed day as well!

So on to our Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge today!!! This week's project is "Easter theme"!

Our wonderful sponsor for the week is Sweet N' Sassy.

Here is my card...

This image is from a Sweet N' Sassy image called "BlueBird".  I thought this image was so pretty and would make a beautiful Easter card.  I colored my image with my copic markers.  I added some glitter in blue to the wings and also some Martha Stewart flocking powder in Robin's Egg to my bluebird.  I then cut him out using my Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and layered it on another Spellbinder called Lacey Circles which I cut out using some design paper.  The design paper I used is called Simple Stories Fabulous.  Love this pretty paper collection!  I used some light blue Bazzil card stock for the banner in the background and also the sentiment "Easter Blessings" which  I stamped with  Memento ink in Black Tuxedo.  I  edged my papers using my Tim Holtz distress ink in Broken China. The flowers I found at the dollar bin at Michaels. I thought the colors matched perfectly!  Oh and I did do some embossing directly on the white card stock using a Sizzix texture plate called Swirls.  I really like how this came out!

Please check out the Loves Rubberstamps store to see supplies used on my card.  Also, check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to see what other  projects the rest of the Design Team made.  If you want to join this fun challenge, I'll post the details below and you could have a chance to win some great prizes form the store. I would love to see some Easter projects from you all! :)

Hope you all like my card for the week!  Have a fantastic rest of the week and thanks so much for stopping by!
