Since I don't have any cardstock that is the actual aqua, I substituted with a pastel blue, which is close enough to the aqua color that is required for the challenge.
The strip on the side of the card is from my Light Bright Designer paper pack. I have attached it to a pink marble cardstock to give it a bordered look. This is attached to a white dot embossed cardstock, which is attached to a pastel blue blank card.
For the leaves behind the flowers, I used my Branch w/Leaves die cut, which is cut out on pastel blue cardstock.
The flowers are cut out from my Flowers and Leaves hand punch. I used pastel pink and Always Artichoke paper. Then I used green brads in the centers.
The sentiment is a wood mount stamp that is stamped on with pink ink from Studio G.

I used black in to stamp the bear onto the card and then I used colored pencils to give it kind of a soft look. The 2 paw prints above the bear are also stamped on with black ink and so is the sentiment, which are all from my Beary Fun rubber stamp set.
The printed paper is from my Snap Color Vibe paper pack from Simple Stories.
For the background image, I chose my Paw Print Background embossing folder.

As I was checking out this weeks layout design and the cards the design team had made, I kept going back to the card that Narelle had made. She always makes such wonderful cards. So I decided to make my card a little bit like hers.
I chose black and white cardstock with paper from my Snap Color Vibe paper pack from Simple Stories.
The bear and the sentiment are both from my Beary Fun rubber stamp set. I used black ink to stamp them onto white cardstock and then I cut out the bear and used a double-sided dimensional sticker to attach it to the card. I also used colored pencils to give the bear some color.
Then I used a black 1/4" ribbon and a yellow brad instead of a button and Baker's Twine like what Narelle used on her card.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and you will return soon. Please feel free to follow my blog and check out more of my cards as I post them. Thanks for stopping by.
Sentiment : Brush Stroke Greetings Sentiments rubber stamp set
Other Stamp Set : Fabulous Florets
Accessories : Pearl beads, Blue Button, Baker's Twine, Paper piercing tool
I found the Ornate Flowers cardstock on google images. After printing it up, I cut it down to size and then used a Jade green colored pencil to color in the leaves and then I sponged on the Brocade Blue ink to give the flowers a little color.
I used a paper piercing tool to put the little holes around the edge of the cardstocks. I also sponged Brocade Blue onto the Fabulous Florets flowers before cutting them out and using double-sided adhesives to attach them to the card.
Then I added the pearls, the button, and the Baker's Twine to make my card complete, along with using Brocade Blue ink for the sentiment.

Even though Easter is already over and it's another new day, I still thought I would make another Easter card. I found this pretty Easter Lily while looking for Easter clip art on google images. I saw this lily and thought it would look good on a card. This weeks card challenge was the perfect layout design I needed for it.
I hope you all had a Blessed Easter this year! Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog. I hope you will visit again....
