A Clean And Simple Easter Card

Happy Wednesday, the kids are on a Spring break and this week is just flying by! I needed a couple of Easter cards, one I am sharing today, the other one I will share on Saturday.

The card has been kept clean and simple. I stamped the cute image from the set Penny Black set Chick to Chick on Xpress it Blending card and used my copic markers for coloring. It's been then cut out with Cutterbee scissors scissors for detail cutting. The black and white frame I had laying around my desk - a left over from a recent project, it was made with Penny Black's new  Frames Die Set which is available with some other new things in my Etsy shop. The butterfly was done using an old Martha Stewart punch and I've added some  Burlap Twine and Wink of Stella glitter to finish off this simple card. The edges of the white card stock were inked using Tumbled Glass distress ink for a softer look. The card base is from Stampin Up, but I believe it's a retired color and I have no idea which shade of green it is, but I thought it was perfect for this Easter card.
