More new OCL and Easter Wishes

Good Morning!

I am completely in love with the new OCL stamps that I've gotten. You've already seen Hot Betty (and there's more of her to come...) and today I have one from the new set "Hippity Hoppity" This card is very simple and trust me doesn't even begin to break the ice of possibilities with this set.
Every year I make cards for two holidays: Christmas and Easter. I don't make nearly as many Easter cards as I do Christmas ones. I usually only have to make about 10 for family and close friends. This means that I don't have to mass produce 3 or 4 designs like I do Christmas cards.
Ok, so here we are with my first Easter card of the season. I used Brocade Blue, Orchid Opulence, Certainly Celery and Pixie Pink. I used my "Blooms and Dots" embossing folders on the top half of the Orchid Opulence piece. I used my SU "Egg Hunt" wheel with versa mark along the Pixie Pink strip. I punched the edge of the Certainly Celery piece with my Fiskars Threading Water Punch. I colored the basket with eggs using SU markers and a Brocade Blue watercolor crayon. I added the button with the thread and the faux white stitching to finish the card.
Have a great day!

Really pretty card. I like the soft colors you used and the embossed background looks great. :)
