Let It Snow.....NOT!

Ole Mother Nature has decided to take two steps back:(  Here in upstate NY there is snow on the ground and the temps are below freezing....Whaaaaaaattttt????!!!!  Just two days ago it was in the low 70's and the hubster and I were tooling along our beloved trail on our bikes....*sigh*.....  

Anyhoo, have you seen the new challenge on the Hero Arts blog????  They're gettin' sketchy this time around: 

I'm scrambling to finish up Easter cards this week so I pulled out an oldie (but goodie!) Hero Arts flower stamp and used Sketch #3:


I also used the colors from the current Dynamic Duos color challenge (with soft suede as a neutral):

Supplies Used:  Hero Arts Blossom Art (CL495) and sentiment and latte chalk ink, Stampin' Up wisteria wonder, so saffron and soft suede cs and wisteria wonder pp,  Papertrey ink white cs, Memory Box Tessatina Border die, MFT banner dies, Darice sequins

I also used some new burlap specialty paper from American Crafts I found at JoAnn's (with a coupon!) to die cut one of the banners- I'm really pleased with how cleanly this cut!

Thanks for your lovely comments!

Robin, it's beautiful! I love the colors you used and that flower is gorgeous!

We've got a bit of snow coming today too. I am SO SICK OF IT!! Here's hoping the 70's are back soon! Have a wonderful Easter, my friend! ♥

Beautiful is RIGHT, Robin! I love the colors and texture. Sorry for the snow:)

Beautiful card, I like the balance in the layout. I'm another Robyn who was tempted to stay in bed this morning when I saw the snow flakes here in Minnesota. I love winter but I also love spring if we ever get it! I'm ready to play in my gardens.

Surprisingly great colors for Easter - never would have thought. Great take on the sketch - love the positive/negative of the die. Shall I say Merry Easter? Hugs, stay warm!

You got the weather we had yesterday in Ohio! Totally done with snow myself. Hope that's the last of it.

Beautiful card, Robin - I just used that flower stamp to make a card yesterday. Am waiting to post it after the recipient lets me know she got it. :) I love all the sequins you used!!

The weather is crazy here in Georgia as well. We don't have snow but one minute it's hot and the next its very windy and cold! I love the burlap paper and it's looks great on your card! Thanks for joining us this week at Dynamic Duos!
