My board for TicTacToe #202 this week is perfect for your Easter or spring cards.  The card I designed will fit several ways but I was thinking of across the top with gold, butterfly and die cut(s).

supplies: Alexandra Renke Magical Butterfly; Miss Ink Floral Wave; The Greetery Easter Jubilee

I started out with my butterfly cut once from an alcohol ink piece and secondly out of vellum.  The background was done with a stencil in abandoned coral DO.  Then I spattered the whole card with gold metallic ink, added the little sentiment and some gold sequins.   Lastly I had the bright idea to stencil and spatter gold on the envelope too - used the ink that was left on my brush so it's a nice pale color.

Hope you'll join us this week at TicTacToe #202 for a chance to be one of our future guest designers!

Here in Texas, I've seen pansies, daffodils and crepe myrtle signs of spring and decided to use my favorite spring flower for my card today's TicTacToe #200 challenge designed by Vicky.  I went down the middle with pastel colors, flowers and a spring theme.

supplies: Iris; sentiment

I'm having fun making these pop-up cards inspired by Jennifer's video.  So easy to do and very quick.  I colored the iris with my copics and arranged on the top and inside.  Blended a little yellow in the background for extra color.

Hope you'll join our challenge this week for a chance to be a guest designer.

Thanks for stopping by.  Crafty hugs,

Crocus are such a glorious sign of spring, don't you think?  I thought they would be perfect for an Easter card.

supplies: crocus

I die cut all the flower parts and leaves from white cardstock and then colored with DO ink blending.  Added some texture with a circle impression plate, added a little sentiment and done.
