Indescribable Easter Challenge

I wanted to use Indescribable Gift for an Easter card for my parents this year.  I’ve heard it’s a cherry blossom, but it kind of looks like an apple blossom, and being from an apple-growing family, it just seemed fitting.  It’s also a very loose interpretation of the Craft Project Central sketch challenge this month.  Here’s the sketch designed by Michelle –

CPC46And here’s my version –

Stampin' Up!, Indescribable Gift, CPC46

I used the On Film framelits to create a frame for the blossoms.  Instead of the banner, I used a butterfly die-cut.  I added some pearls to the center of the butterfly and on the blossom layer.  I felt it needed a few more, because that one large pearl just looked a little lonely.

For the background on the larger Blushing Bride layer, I stamped the I Love Lace background stamp in Blushing Bride.  And if you haven’t used the 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon yet, you have to try it out.  It’s so easy to tie – and very pretty.

You can see my interpretation is quite loose.  I counted the bottom of the framelit as the semi-circle layer.  I’m not sure that really counts – but having anything else on the card just didn’t seem to fit.

Don’t forget – free shipping begins today!  Take advantage of this week (through Friday, April 10) to pick up those items you forgot during Sale-a-bration!  Free shipping is for all orders (excluding expedited) and you can use it for catalog merchandise, weekly deals, clearance rack and online only merchandise – anything except Paper Pumpkin subscriptions.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
