Simple Sunday

Hello friends! Things have been busy around the ol' casa de Amy these past few days so I didn't have much time to make a card last night. Though it did dawn on me that Easter is just a week away... holy smokes when did that happen?! So I decided to revisit my Simple Sunday idea and make an Easter card in under half an hour. This Pure Innocence One Sweet Chick stamp set was the perfect way to go because these little PI gals are super quick to color up... especially when I paper pieced her dress as well. Heck, it was coming together so fast that I took a minute to even add a ribbon sash around her waist, ooh lala! ;) I also made a dent in the little pile of Stella & Rose scraps that have been sitting on my desk which saved me from having to dig through the paper stash and saved time. The over-all design may not be re-inventing the wheel or anything but I think it makes for a sweet card. Alrighty then, I've got another long day ahead of me so I should get moving... TTFN! Supply list: cardstock- Bazzill and PTI paper- My Mind's Eye (Stella & Rose) stamps- My Favorite Things (One Sweet Chick and sentiment) ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox creamy brown ribbon Kaiser Craft gems and pearls Prima flowers Copic markers: skin- E000, E00, E11, R00, R20 hair- E35, E57, E59 clothes- R22, R43, R0000, R000, R00, 0, BG000, G0000, YG93, YG95 egg/chicks- E40, E41, 0, Y11, Y21, Y35, YR04
