Today I'm sharing with you my Easter card #3! Taking the same Graphic 45 papers (Sweet Sentiments) as with the other two, I created something a little different. I had a few little bits of bling I cut off from a flourish that was left over form the layout (58th Wedding Anniversary) and didn't really want to package up those little pieces again, nor did I want to throw them out! I knew I would be making another Easter card, and Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #4 with the bling, glitz, and glam, was still on my mind. So, why not make my 3rd Easter card using the bling left overs, and create a card for the challenge as well!
I did something a little different this time, something I haven't done for a while. Using my Snow Cap Acrylic Paint Dabber around the edges of the paper, and to paint the metal filigree embellishments I have from Monique's "ButterBee Scrap" (love her store!), I gave the card a modified Sabrina version of the Shabby Chic look.
As per my posting habit, here are photos of the card from differing angels.
You'll note that I also added bling to the metal filigree pieces in the corners o the card.
Do you want to know a secret? The blue paper under the pink, has a very large piece missing out of it because I fussy cut something out from the other side. It was a good thing that I hadn't cut to where I wanted to fussy cut, by cutting from the outside edge in to it. I decided to poke my scissors in and cut from there. Doing this later allowed me to use this corner of the paper as you see now! That's why I didn't pop this layer up, in case you are wondering that is.
Thank you for stopping by, and happy papercrafting!

With so many wonderful projects entered for this challenge, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had won challenge #4 with both this card entry and my LO entry "58th Anniversary". Wow! Thank you Gloria and CHA DT!
