It is another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow and our challenge this week is called VINTAGE EASTER.
When I found the vintage Easter postcard featuring the bouquet of Calla Lillies, I knew I wanted to use it with the Easter sentiment from Sugar Creek Hollow. Then I found the flowers in the bridal section at Michaels and I got a bit carried away but after the winter that didn't want to end, this makes me happy.
I have chalked the Easter sentiment and added a few purple Stickles and some pearls to it. I cut the filagree cross using my Cricut and added some pearls. The butterflies were punched with Martha Stewart punches, spritzed with some pearl glimmer mist and some pearls added. I added double organza bow and three pearl sprays to the bouquet (OK, so I got carried away with pearls too). Then everything was mounted on the lemon paper with a piece of lace from my stash.
