Sweet Stamps- Easter

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is Easter

 I made a card and an ATC with the cross image. On the card, I stamped the cross on white cardstock and colored it with Copics. The frame is stamped on Vellum, embossed with white EP and colored with Copics. The flowers from the frame were stamped again on white cardstock and on scraps from my last project with the Transparent Microfine glitter.

The ATC uses the cross in Vellum and colored with Copics. I used Ranger Distress inks in Purple on the cardstock  and then embossed with the Dots embossing folder.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
