Celebrate Easter + Dance Stage

Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Can you believe it's already the last day of March? This month just flew by! (I wish I could say the same for the pollen.) And now Easter is just around the corner. For my Easter card, I paired this beautiful new Celebrate Easter greeting w/ the Lily Cross & the Stained Glass Oval. I know the rectangle version would have worked better, but the oval is the one  I have 😃 I kept the colors neutral & the layout clean & simple to let the images shine. First I put the cross into my Misti & stamped it w/ desert sand. After lightly coloring it w/ Copics, I overstamped it w/ metallic gold ink then heat embossed it w/ gold powder. I did the same to the frame, coloring in just a few areas. 
In real life, the gold embossing is really pretty. You can see it a bit in the pic below.
Here's a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
And....apparently I'm not done with this cutie Ballerina from last month. For Monday's challenges on Splitcoast, one was to do "no line" coloring & the other was things with wings. I'll tell you...this little missy was a toughie to no line. She's so little it was hard to keep her facial details.

I no lined her by using desert sand ink, colored her, then masked her & stamped the butterfly w/ lt blue & colored it. I was so impressed by Nancy's card HERE & the floor she drew that I added a drawn floor. The curtains were dry embossed, cut out & added on top. I've had this folder for quite awhile & had forgotten about it until I made this. Made for each other, I'd say.
Here's a look at the inside. I used the folder again on the lower inside. Below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Your little butterfly dancer is amazing!! I love the stage and curtains and I'm sooo envious of your stage curtain embossing!! Such a good idea with the butterfly wings too!!! Makes your little girl's dance costume is adorable!

Julie, these are amazing. I love how you used the stained glass to make a wonderful frame and kept the first card monochrome - it is stunning. Your butterfly and curtains on the dance card are some super awesome ideas. Wow - these are two wonderful cards. Hugz

Wow Julie, both of these are fabulous cards! Love your sweet butterfly ballerina! The Easter card is my fav. I made some cards using this image & greeting last week, but mine did not turn out as gorgeous as yours! Wow, love the soft colors with the gold embossing. Gorgeous!

The gold embossing is beautiful and makes for an elegant card. I love that border you created too! Just stunning! Your dancer is over the top sweet and those butterfly wings on her costume is super creative!
