a piled-on Easter & spring adventure

I made another card - I had to, after I saw the colors at Pals Paper Arts  and Fell. In. Love. I'm not sure whether it's just the colors, or Beth Beard's beautiful card, but I had to, I tell you.  Plus, you know, there's that whole "make lots of cards" item on my to-do list today, and two is closer to "lots" than one is.
 stamp sets - Delightful Dozen, Everything Eleanor; ink - Rose Red, Versamark; card stock - Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron; Big Shot with Framed Tulips embossing folder and Beautiful Wings embosslit die

These colors *needed* to be an Easter card, which fits the prompt at Pile It On that ends tonight, so I went looking for a few other challenges I thought I could fit in:
          Cut It Up - die cut (Beautiful Wings) plus green for spring
          Addicted to Stamps and More - anything goes
          Aloha Friday at kitty bee designs - things with wings
          Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - emboss it
          Craftitude - add a little green
How fun!  Now, I'm feeling the need to try something a little different (and it's not homework) - there may be one or two more cards checked off that to-do list soon.

This is a pretty card! I really like how you used the frame around the outside for another layer. The embossing looks great!

Thanks for joining our Green challenge at Cut it Up!
