I am so honoured to have been invited to be a Guest Designer over at DU2DS for this week and the month of April.  Hope you will join in  - just pop over  here to see the beautiful DT projects, and details of how to enter. 
If you are wondering where to find an Easter digi design, there are some fabulous ones available to purchase at Chris's Sketching Stamper, and  Sandra Dry Designs.
So, stop the waffling Sylvia and show us your card!!! 

I have used one of Sandra's beautiful new Easter designs for this easel card,  coloured it with Copics, printed a second time so I could 3-d the "bows" and then added a sentiment which I created on the computer.  Ribbons from my stash, and of course there had to be a sprinkling of Glamour Dust too!
Look forward to seeing all your lovely projects over at Dare You To Digi.
Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Hi there lovely Bloggers!!  Have really missed you all whilst I've been away, and I'm so pleased to be reunited with my blogging and all things crafty!  Have had fabulous weather, but there's nowhere quite like home, even when it rains!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to, but in the meantime here is a card I made just before my hols. Thanks to  Lyn (Spyder) for suggesting I enter this into the Vintage Challenge at OSAAT and also the Flowers Challenge at Quirky Crafts. Thanks a bunch Lyn!
The beautiful stamp is "Serena" from Stampsmith, the corner flourishes and greeting are both from the "French Mail" set by Crafty Secrets.
Backing paper from the Rhonna Farrer Urban Junque download at Two Peas in a Bucket. Lace trim, and old paper Roses from my stash - Roses coloured with gold paint, with a twine bow and butterfly charm. Black card layer has been spritzed with gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water.
Hope you are all fit and well - will be visiting you ASAP. Lots of love and hugs, Sylvia xxxx
Below is a photo I took on holiday  - it was just poking through a metal fence at the roadside - love the colour.  (Think it's Hibiscus?)
PS: Thanks to Beryl and Nettie for confirming that it is Hibiscus!
