Last Minute Easter Cards

I suddenly realized today that I'd forgotten to make Easter cards for 3 different relatives/friends, so I spent the afternoon making these cards for them. This was the SCS challenge for this past Monday, and I'd love to give you the link, but I've been unable to get on SCS for the past hour or more. I used just about the last of my sweet always dsp for these, along with countless bits of scraps. Most flowers were punched or die cut and I added punched ferns, branches and leaves. Each was punched with a different border punch and each has a different colored ribbon. The word spring is from a G Studio stamp, and the insert cards have Happy Easter stamped on them.
Whew, I'm glad I got those finished up! Now I have to die some eggs and I should be just about finished for the big day on Easter!
Have a great weekend everyone!


ETA: You can find the instructions for making these pocket flower pot cards
