A easter inspired card for you all

Hi Everyone. Hope you all had a great weekend. I am still on cloud 9 about my design team Position with Pez-A-Doodle, And there is something else in the works too. Today's card was inspired from the Sketches By Tamara Site. One of the blogs I follow (Olena) is always doing these challenges, so I thought I'd try my hand too. This sketch is from one a while back. #85. Hope you like it.For the CS I used Yo-yo yellow and Lavender Lace. The 4 strips of paper are from a paper stack that I have. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the maker. Thought all these colors were pretty indicative of Easter, so away I went.
I used my very loved Nesties in both classic and scalloped square. The image was stamped 2 times on a very pale printed lavender paper that I had in my stash. I believe the stamp is a Time to Stamp Medallion. I colored in most of the medallion using a variety of markers (glitter, Le Plume and Glaze). After each was done, I layered them on the card to give visual impact.
Then to finish off the card, I used Versafine in Black Onyx on the Sentiment from SU. Behind that, a butterfly was stamped in Versamark and left to dry. Finally a metal butterfly and a brad were added to give weight to the top half. This was really outta my zone and I had to leave it till this morning, before I thought it was blog worthy lol.
I hope you all had a great weekend. Thank you all for sending me congratulations about the DT position. I really appreciate all the kind words. Until later today...
Happy Crafting
