Easter Card

Second Post for today....another Easter Card.
Shown here is an Easter card that I designed using 5 layers of 2 types of white cardstock and a touch of gold. The card base is a textured CS and layered with a mat that is embossed with Cuttlebug EF Leafy Branch and edged with a Pilot Gold marker. Added a white organza ribbon with gold. Cut a scalloped oval and plain oval with Nesties dies. The cross which I cut out is stamped in versamark and heat embossed with Gold EP. Cross has a lovely leaf design . Attached this with pop up dots. Image is an Inkadinkado stamp purchased several years ago at Joann's. This is a re-design of a card that I made for my stamping club.  I like the elegant and simple look and is one that I would send to a man.  I have made a photo showing the inside which I printed on the computer.

Challenges to enter:
Cards for Men:  Make an Easter card.
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge: Theme is Easter.
Do You Stack Up Challenge: Use Scallops. I think the scallops on the oval add a lot to the design.
Cupcake Craft Challenges:  Use a lot of layers. This is about as many layers as I ever use.
