I'm a bit behind on Easter cards. I hadn't look at the date and I just realized it's only a few weeks away. When I saw the current challenge at Tic Tac Toe challenge and realized that "Easter" was in the grid, I knew I would be playing along. I had a new slimline sunshine die from scrapbook.com that I wanted to use on an Easter card so going down the grid for gold and yellow was just what I needed
I kept this very simple. I did play with a variety of yellows and had some very bright combinations on my desk. I settled on Pineapple from Taylored Expressions. It's a soft yellow without being pale. I wanted to highlight the sun at the bottom so I cute a second one out of the gold foil and offset it slightly then popped them both.
It's a simple card, but I like that the focus is all on the meaning.
Thanks to the Tic Tac Toe Challenge for the inspiration.
