The theme this time is Easter.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in our last challenge and congratulate the winner.

A special thank you to Jennifer Woodward and Dorte Kvist for being our guests for March.

The theme for this challenge is Easter.

I chose this adorable image called Basket of Friendship.

Used textured periwinkle colored card stock for the base easel card.  Papers of beautiful flowers is by K & Company.  Stamped with black versafine ink and embossed with clear EP.  Colored with Copics. Spellbinders circle dies.  Lace is a remnant from the fabric store.  The tag and corners are Martha Stewart.
Gingham ribbon and pearls  finish the card.
