I really love the SU Twitterpated DSP and matching buttons. I decided to use this fun pattern and colors for an Easter card. I probably should have steered clear of the Island Indigo as it is a deeper blue, which isn't really springy, but it made such a nice pop off the pink that I went with it.
The stamp is from the $1 bin at Michael's which I stamped onto my beaded circle nestie. I sponged the beaded areas and added bling on every other circular sponged area. Popped up the whole panel on dimensionals.
I used the smallest circle bead diecut for three circles on the side to which I matted with a circle punch and topped with matching buttons tied with pink floss.
I used a border punch down the left side and added some more bling. Last, but not least, I added my double loop bow and placed a small rose and leaves in the center. My MS pine branch punch broke while I was doing this. My favorite punch!! It's retired now, but I found one on e-bay - hope it works good. Can't live without that punch.
I think that about does it. Thanks for taking a look and have a great week!

Well, if this isn't a pretty one...love it! Great paper and I love that ribbon/bow treatment. Is this your signature bow? Should be. Oh, drat...those punches. I have broken one or two in my days of crafting, too. It's maddening.

I love this card. Love the blues and pinks and this gorgeous DP with matching buttons. You have put these all together so well on the beauty. I love how you did the ribbon and bow. So glad you were able to find a punch to replace your broken one.

This card has "Sweet" written all over it!!! How cute those buttons are going down the side. Love this pretty layout. You have created a most amazing Easter card. That punch must be notorious for breaking because I broke mine as well just last year. Broke my heart until I replaced it myself. So glad you found another one. Hip Hip Hooray on the punch count too!!!!

Wow Sis, this is scrumpious. Has a country/fresh/vintage/punchy look to it. Love all the details, and I now want that dp when before I didn't look twice at it. You could be the spokeperson for that $1 stamp too - if I wasn't on crafty supply restriction, I would want to go get it now. LOL! This is really, really pretty and I love it. Hugz!!!

Gorgeous card, Pamzi!! Love the colour combo and the DPs you used. I have avoided that nestie, but you have made it look very tantalizing based on how you have used it! Great layout and lots and lots of punches :)
