No Calories in Easter Chocolates

     If the subject line on this post grabs you as much as it does me, I am hoping there's truth in the sentiment on this Easter card.  :-D


The image, sentiment and sketch are all by
and I tried to use the colors as well.


     Colored with my ProMarkers and die cut with a die from Die-namics.  I cut a frame by using the same Die-namics die inside a die by Memory Box.  That's a new technique for me - layering dies from different sets and even different companies together to make frames for the image pieces.  I really like the results so I'm going to be doing a lot more of that.  :-D

     I added just ribbon and the small handmade bow for embellishment and and now I have another Easter card which will be easy to mail.

Now there is a couple of reason to love this card. One because it is so darn pretty and festive and two because there are no calories in those chocolates.
A friend of mine posted the "difinitiuon of calories" on Face Book that other day that said:
CALORIES
(NOUN)
These are little creatures that live in your closet and sew your clothes a little bit tighter every night.
Those little creatures must also be in that basket of your. LOL
Wishing you a fun, non caloric, day.

Beautiful in BLUE! LOVE! Your card is so very pretty. I'm so thankful there's no chocolate in Easter candy too. Since I'm sitting here eating M&M's I can pretend they came from the bunny!

I'm with you on the calorie issue! Love the colors you've used, such a clean and cheery combo. The frame turned out perfect, going to check and see if I have any I can combine to try. So happy you joined in on the PIP challenge this week.
