I purchased some cheapo burlap sheets in a stack at a big box craft store earlier this year, and this seemed to be the perfect time to bring them out. I gave them a wash of DecoArt White Wash paint. More patterned paper from my stash in a soft mint that really does not photograph well in the bright sun.
I used a beautiful Memory Box frame die cut dipped in a puddle of Walnut Stain DOX to frame my Tim Holtz Wildflowers (original set--I don't have the newer set). These are painted with DOX and a water pen.
And there's that embossed butterfly belly band again! This was actually a test scrap I made on pink card. I used DOX on it and it looked HORRIBLE! So I sanded it off, gave it a scraping of gesso with a credit card and added DOX again. I kind of liked how it turned out, so I saved it, in case I made a card I could use it on. Just perfect for this card, I think.
A Chit Chat sticker makes for an easy sentiment, also dipped in Walnut Stain DOX. So another Easter card, easily mailed. I'm happy to say I think it will reach it's destination in time to please my sister and brother in law who grow flowers at Hilltop Farms in Springfield, MO. Thank you, Amy, for sharing the good news with me so many years ago!

I'm sharing my card with these challenges:
Thank you for your visit! I wish you and your family a wonderful Easter!
Hugs and Blessings!
