Veranda crazy!

Can I tell you how much I love the Veranda Creative Basics paper? I used it two months in a row when cropping with my friends (Hi Sharon, Diane, and Wendy!!) First up was Thank you cards, and then the colors were perfect for Easter, too!

For the Thank you card, I used the flourish from the Felicity stamp set (January 2010 promotion). The ribbon comes with the creative basics kit- so handy! I am really into the rock-n-roll effect lately. I also 2nd generation-stamped the flourish inside and used a sentiment from Thank You. The Template is Wishes- Sentiment Secured (upside down).

I can't believe Easter is around the corner, but at least I have one card made! Same paper, different effect! The stamp set is Easter Eggs (Feb. 2009 SOTM), and I used Eastertime for the inside (more rock-n-roll coloring, surprise surprise)! I used the corner rounder to scallop the edge, and of course, had to bling it up a bit! The template is based on Wishes- All Stacked Up, but I changed it a little to fit the card dimensions.

Happy Creating and Happy Easter!

Really like how you decorated the inside of the card, it looks very balanced. Spreading the large sentiment over the fold is a great idea.
