KS Monday -- Mar 29th, 2010

Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~
Spring Break is over here and kids are going back to school! I enjoyed having kids at home and we also went to San Antonio TX for Kimberly's Cheer Competition at Six Flags last Saturday... the last competition for the season!! She and all kids in the team worked so hard and I'm so proud of them! Of course Six Flags are so much fun :):)

For today's card, I was thinking about the holiday...well, Easter is coming this weekend and I wanted to do something different with Nesting Dolls set. I first started to work on the background with heat embossing the egg image using VearsaMark and white EP. Next, I sponged the background with Memento tangelo, cantaloupe and new sprout. Then, I stamped the flower images with the same colors. I used the same color combo for each letter of the greeting, using 1/2 Pint Playful Alphabet Buddy set. To embellish the card, I attached the butterflies with rhinestones.
All papers are from St. Patty's KSS Green Paper Package by Paper Temptress and I used the sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping (FTL83).
