Happy Easter, Happy Spring

















I'm finally using my new stamp sets Egg Hunt and Background Basics: Tin Types.  I won these stamp sets from Papertrey's anniversary celebration in February.  It took a few weeks for them to get here and then it took me a while to open them and ink them up.  They are both such great sets.  I can see using the Tin Types on so many different cards.

I thought I'd add some fun texture to the card so I cut a piece of olive felt from Hobby Lobby with my scalloped long rectangles nestabilities.  I trimmed it to fit the card base then wrapped it with some white fibers from CTMH and green fibers I picked up ages ago.  I think the rest of the card speaks for itself :)
