Easter Basket

Greetings!  I would like to give a warm welcome to my newest followers.  Thank you so much for encouraging me in this journey.  My card today is for the current challenge over at Make My Monday.  We are to create a project that is inspired by the book cover below.  I had not heard of this book before, but MMM was kind enough to provide a summary that you might be interested in viewing.  

It has been one of those weeks where I longingly look into my art studio with little time to create.  And so, I pondered on what I might create, if I got a few stolen moments and a vision of simple Sissix Die Cut Vines in similar colors to the book cover came to mind.  Like the book cover, I added a central focal point in black and white with a beautiful image from Gecko Galz.  Rather than replicate the butterflies, I chose to add touches of white with some beautiful white lace purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  As I will most certainly need a few more Easter Cards, I added a sentiment by Studio G to complete my card along with my absolute favorite fiber choice, seam binding.  I hope you are having a wonderful day.  Hugs, Yvonne
