Happy Easter!

This week's Midweek Throwdown is to create an Easter card.  I won't be sending another box before that deadline, so I just made one card.  It'll go in my box to hold for next year.  I keep a box with dividers where I store cards after deadlines have passed.  Often, I'll make a few cards close to the holiday because I'm inspired but I might not have recipients for all of them.  Rather than send the cards late and force my shipper to store them, I keep them myself. 

I used some really old paper that I'd cut to A2 size years ago.  The cardstock pieces were all in the A2 pile or scrap pile as well.

  3. Love your flower with the little butterfly. Definitely some bright papers here, but you did a great job with them. I'm usually way behind for making cards for the deadlines, so I mostly just make non-holiday cards.
