The first card you see above is using the stamp set "Easter Blossoms" from the Occasions Mini Catalog. If you are interested in getting it you need to do so by April 30th. The colors I used to create this card are marina mist, soft suede, and very vanilla. I used my Big Shot with the embossing folder elegant bouquet on the marina mist cardstock.The second card above is made using the stamp set "Just Believe." I love the saying, because our faith in Christ is based on this. I thought it made an excellent saying for Easter. The colors used in this card are certainly celery, crumb cake, daffodil delight, and whisper white. This is a fast card to make. It turns out beautifully too!

This is a close up of the ribbon. I just zig zagged it back and forth. I found using snail was not strong enough to hold the ribbon in place. I ended up having to use sticky strip to get it to stay. I don't want my friends/customers going home and having their ribbons come undone on them.This card was the very last one I made. I really love the colors in the Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper. What really seemed to add to it was when I added in the two branches. The other thing I used was crystal effects on the brown part of the big flower. I don't know if you can really tell that much in this picture though.

The layered example below was really the second card I had made. I was not sure at first if it was going to have the elegant look about it, but in the end, I believe, that it does fit into that category. I believe it took adding some rhinestones and dimension to give it the look of elegance I was looking for. I would love to hear if you think it is elegant or not. I will not be offended if you don't agree.
This is a close up of the dimension that is on the card pictured below. This was also the first card I had made for my class. I thought right away that this was definitely an elegant card. The stamp set "vintage vogue" is such a great set to get the look of elegance.

This first picture shows the layers of the card. Most of the time when you take a picture facing right at it you can't see the layers. This is why I took this view and posted it on here.
When I was totally finished with this card, I was pleased with the end results. Believe it or not, I am not always totally pleased with what I make. I am sure some of you feel the same way when you make something too.Stampin' Up! supplies used to create this card are below.
