Happy Easter - My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette Challenge

Good morning and welcome to this week's My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette Challenge!  We have a wonderful spring color palette for you!  Perfect to make an Easter or other spring card.  The MTME Bold Botanicals set was an immediate go to for me for this week's challenge!  The digital stamps make it really easy to print it on your paper and off you go...I also have been seeing a ton of vellum out there and haven't used my vellum in a really long time.  I have a huge ream of it so I printed the sentiment directly on the vellum paper.  Changing the size of the sentiment was very easy too.  Often I get stuck with my sentiment being too small so I was pleased I could change the size to center it properly on the base of the card.

Have fun creating...I'm looking forward to seeing how you use the color palette.
Ingredients:  Digital Stamps:  My Time Made Easy: Sentimental Occasions and Bold Botanicals; Cardstock:  Stampin' Up Whisper White, Bazzill Basics Lavender and Vellum; Buttons: PaperTrey Ink; Twine:  The Twinery; Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose
