Easter Card with floral and scalloped focal

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog!!! My heart's excited that I've made another Easter card! I love Easter Sunday almost as much as Christmas! My favorite Bible passage is John 14: 1-6. Such hope from those verses! We also became honorary grandparents this afternoon with the arrival of little Aubrey Bethany! My husband has been like a dad mentor figure and garage buddy to Aubrey's dad. Aubrey's mom is the former pet parent of our "Mr. Bennett". Little Aubrey weighs just under 6 pounds at 5 lbs. 10 oz., so I might have to shop for a few preemie outfits tomorrow. Not sure if they have any small stuff. We're hoping to meet Aubrey either tomorrow or Monday!!!! Exciting! 

But I've digressed. This Easter card is not for a DT commitment, so I will link it to other challenge blogs and share with several Facebook groups.

Floral Scalloped Focal Easter card=



Design notes: 
1. white cardstock base 5" wide x 7" high
2. pale pink cardstock inner base is 1/4" smaller than the white base
3. pink tonal stripe print paper has been in my stash for a long time
4. more white cardstock was used for the stenciled scalloped focal; stencils from Hot Off The Press/Paper Wishes website
5. pine green, grass green, magenta, purple markers
6. purple, red, and green glitter paint pens used on the center flower of the focal piece
7. gold cardstock scrap, fine black ink pen, and clear gems complete the card



Inspiration for pulling out the old stencil pack from HOTP/PW came from seeing Donna W's inspiration DT card at Four Seasons Challenge Blog. THANKS, Donna W!!!! I haven't used any of the stencils from the set for probably several years. Springtime is the perfect time to use the scalloped 'circle' and the flower (flipped to get opposite direction and then I altered it slightly to get a center straighter stem flower).
