A Vintage Easter

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday!  
Today I wanted to share with you a couple of Easter cards that I made for OWH.  The deadline for Easter is February 7th so I thought I better get busy!  :)   I decided to use my new Crafty Secrets Vintage Easter sheet that I bought online.  There are so many adorable images and they are perfect for making quick and easy cards... and I can take a break from coloring for a bit!  I love it!  Here are 2 of the cards that I've made so far...     
Both cards have a kraft cardstock background.  I roughed up the edges with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser tool before adding some Tea Dye distress ink.  I created the flowers with the Rose Creations nesties and I used my new Marianne die for the little bird below.  The dp above is from MME, also new and the dot paper is from the $1 bin at target.  Added some gems and pearls to finish them up.    
Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!  It's freezing here today in Colorado!  But, I know our team loves the cold weather!  
GO BRONCOS!!
