Easter Card!

Hi Everyone,

I'm stuck in the house all weekend long as I'm under the weather.  The hubby took our daughter out for the day to avoid catching what I have.  I made the most of that time, when my fever came down. 

Finished up this cute little card, using my Simon Says Kit of the Month for March.  LOVE this kit!  I especially love the cute stamps and dies that go with them.  It's been sold out twice now....I can see why. 

I used a mason jar stamp from Inkadinkado, stamped onto white cardstock, and then glued the sequins onto it.  It is NOT a shaker card.  I guess you can call it a faux shaker card?!  The lace trim is from Recollections (Michael's) which I used under the jar lid and also sued at the bottom for the "picnic" blanket.  

I made this card in particular for the sketch and color challenge #34 happening over at Your Next Stamp.  
I also have stamp set from the YNS that I recently ordered, so hope I get to use it this weekend.

Here's my card...

Thanks for stopping by!
