Sweet N Sassy Monday DT challenge 19

Hello everyone! I am the hostess of this week's Sweet N Sassy stamps DT challenge. Since we are now less than one week away from Easter I thought it would be fitting to have this week's challenge be to make an Easter card or project. I thought this might help us all finish up on our Easter creations.

I have a special sample to show you today. Now, it is not special because it is fancy or anything like that but it is special to me because it is the first card that my oldest daughter Rachel and I have made together. Take a look:

My daughter's class was doing a stamping unit in home ec and embossing was one of the projects. Well, the class ran out of time and Rachel had not gotten a chance to do hers so the teacher who is a friend of mine said she could do the project at home. So, Rachel did all the assembling of the card and I chose all the supplies and layout we would use. I need to keep a simple layout for her but I wanted to choose beautiful embellishments to compliment the elegance and beauty of the stamps. So, even though this is a simple card to make I still think it is rather elegant. The cross from the Elegant Blessings set and sentiment from the Easter lily set were embossed with gold detail embossing powder.

A close up of the beautiful shimmer in the paper. You can find the gold sparkle metallic and cryogen white that I used at Paper Temptress.
