Everything Eleanor Easter

JUST when I start to feel like Spring is really here, Mother Nature decides to drop some more snow in our forecast!  We are supposed to get another dusting tonight. Yeah, it's only supposed to be an inch or so, but most of our snow is gone now so I thought it was over!  It was really chilly here today, but at least the sun was shining in, giving me some wonderful light to stamp on as I created a card for our Holiday challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. :)

Anni is our Guest Designer for this challenge. Make sure you stop by her blog and check out the adorable Christmas card she has created!

For my card, I used the challenges at The Paper Players and Dynamic Duos.
I started out making Easter eggs for my card, but I just could not get patterns on them that worked, so I switched to flowers instead. I like this much better!
I am bummed that you cannot see the clouds that I sponged on the Soft Sky in Whisper White and Illuminate ink AT ALL!  They are so wispy in person and really add to the card!  No matter what light or angle I photographed this in though, I could not capture them. :( So just pretend they are there because they really are! lol

  2. I can see the clouds, of you look carefully they are there!! And flowers are for Easter, no calories!! Love the colours you have used x

  3. If you look close enough you can see a hint of the clouds! I love your flowers and the butterfly! The way you added the solid color to make it look like a shadow is awesome!! Thanks for joining us this week at Dynamic Duos.

  4. Hi Shana. Beautiful card. I was able to see the clouds after I pulled the picture up on my screen, love their subtle texture. Have a great day! hugs Monika xxx

  5. This is so, so pretty. I love the flowers and that butterfly - a super Easter card.

    I know just what you mean about spring - we had a dusting of snow this morning, gone now, but it is cold!

  6. This is beautiful Shana, love how u interpreted the sketches :)

  7. A very pretty and serene Easter card, Shana!

  9. Very pretty, Shana! I love the soft colors and the gorgeous flowers. I bet the clouds are fabulous in person. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players this week!

  10. So elegant Shana! I didn't notice the clouds at first either - but love the subtle texture/depth they add to the card. Gorgeous butterfly.
    I know exactly what you mean...we have a winter storm watch warning (in spring) all day tomorrow here.
