Chris is back today with another of her projects; this time a quick and easy card you can make for Easter.
The imagery is from three of our collage sheets: Bunnies & Eggs, Bird Feathers Fluff and Watercolor Butterflies II. Working with collage sheets is a time saver since there is no need to stamp and color. Whether you use them because you love the images or because you’re pressed for time, they’re a fabulous resource.
As always, a big thank-you shout out to Chris for sharing her work!
