Easter Blessings

Hello!! I'm so sorry for my long absence.  I always have plans to get something created, but am sooo tired after work. I have now completed my second night of a sleep study to see if there is a way to deal with the tiredness! fingers crossed!  Anyway, I've been working with some previous stamps from Magnolia-licicous because I {{love}} the Easter images!!  This is #3029 Chicken Tilda and #560 Wheelbarrow.  Both are in stock at Diana's fabulous store with a store credit for each purchase and great prices, too!! Just enter the stamp number or name in the search box and they will pop right up (including minis of the same image!!)

I used xpress it blending card for my main image and image panel.  I dry embossed some cryogen white with the paisly embossing folder and sponged it with a little bashful blue. I colored my images with copic markers and then used some new Cosmo Cricket paper as well as some Bo Bunny double dot for my layers.  the rose die is from MFT and they are cut from soft yellow felt.  The leaf embellishment is also an MFT die. I pulled out my sewing machine for a little stitching on my card. It's a look I love so much, but don't take the time to do.
I used the currect sketch from Midweek Magnolias and will be entering my card into their gallery.
If you're looking for a challenge, please check out the April challenge from the Magnolia-licious Design Team. It's posted HERE!
I'm off to get this card entered, but am then getting going on my sample card for this very challenge!!
If I've left any questions about my card unanswered, please don't hesitate to ask!!
Thanks for coming by!!

This is so cute Cheryl -- I haven't gotten ANY Easter cards done this year :( Good luck with the sleep thing -- I've been battling sleep issues for over 10 years. I did a lab study -- well TRIED to do a lab study but I couldn't sleep so they prescribed sleeping pills & sent me on my day. 3 years later I am trying to wean myself off of them because I am addicted. I did try a home study, which ruled out apnea --- so something else is wrong. I sure hope you get better answers than I have!
