I just love this card – not entirely sure what to call the fold but it is sort of deconstructed, just held together by the Blushing Bride/Whisper White layers and 4 stampin’ dimensionals!

This is a perfect card to celebrate Easter – light and joyful colors and the cutest little spring lamb giving us a cheeky look. This is another card from the Shoe Box swap from last month – I saved sharing it until today…. and it is using more from the DSP stash!!
Continuing my theme of using Designer series paper, here is another card from the shoe box swap, it features one of the designs from the ‘Cherry on the Top’ Paper stack – a very handy 6 x 6 pack that gives you 4 sheets of 12 double sided designs in lovely bright colors.
