Upcycled Easter Card

I made this card for Tales from the Craft Room 'Easter/Splring' challenge.  I'm also entering the Crafty Gals Corner 'Spring is Here' challenge, Crafty Cardmakers 'Easter' challenge and Crafty Creations Challenges 'Anything Goes'..

5" x 5" white matt card blank
Upcycled Easter card
Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables' die3s
Making Cards 'Landscapes' paper
White card

I attached the paper to thin white card to make it sturdier for die cutting and also so it was the same thickness as the upcycled card.  I then used the two largest dies to make a frame and attached it to the card blank.  I used the smaller of the two dies to cut a square from the Easter card, ensuring the sentiment was in the middle of my die cut.  I then inserted this panel into the die cut frame.

The bright border really pops on this card. It is a fabulous accent to the upcycled card and pulls it all together.

Thank you for joining us at Crafty Gals Corner for our Spring Is Here challenge.
