Stained Glass Window

Happy Friday!

I hope you're having a terrific week! With all this crazy weather...warm...cold...warm...warmer...cold...etc, I know a lot of people have had the flu or the sniffles or major allergies. Seems most everything is starting to bloom about a month early so count me in the allergy group. Love the blooming, hate the sneezing, lol. Some days I feel like a walking allergy med commercial.

So anyway, I've been working on some Easter cards and finished a fairly quick and easy little card I want to share today. On white c/s, I stamped the lily cross image and added a little color. I did this really quickly since I knew I wanted a vellum overlay and some of the detail would be lost anyway. The stained glass oval was stamped on vellum w/ the gray ink and I sprinkled on the ep immediately (since it's dye ink) and heat embossed it. I sponged on a little of the pink ink onto the back side of the vellum and added just a little darker pink w/ a marker. I embossed the greeting on the marbled pink c/s using the same ep and the black ink. The window was die cut out of the pink. Then I used an embossing folder so it wouldn't look too plain. The vellum, then the image were attached underneath and then onto a 5.50 x 4.25 white card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
