I'm back with another Set of Cards I've made for my G.I.F.T Gala Card Basket Donation and this time I'm playing along with the Taylored Expressions March Maker Challenge!! 

It's SUPER Easy to play along:
At the beginning of each month TE will introduce a new monthly theme:
(March's theme is "Easter") and you'll have until the last day of the month to create a card - or a bunch of cards - in keeping with the theme. You can enter up to three cards by posting them anytime during the month on the TE Facebook Fan Page with the hashtag #TEMakerChallenge and #TayloredExpressions.
Each card you create will earn you one entry in a special drawing that will take place the week following the end of the challenge. Three random winners will be selected from Facebook Fan Page entries and one random winner will be selected from the TE Studio entries, with each winner receiving a $25 TE gift card.

So I've made some BEAUTIFUL Cards inspired by a Card I saw that Keia Shipp-Smith created last year here!! I LOVED the Gate Fold Design, so I took the Card Design and gave it my own touch!! I LOVE the way they turned out!! I've used ALL TE Products too!! So lets take a look!! 

 I used the Big Blooms Sunflower and Big Blooms Daisy Stamp Sets and Stamped and Embossed them, coloring them with Copic Markers!! I used (Y00, Y20, Y26 and YR23 for the Sunflower and Daisy Center, and E40, E42, E44, E47 for the Sunflower CenterR00, R22, R17 for the Daisy and G40, G43 and G46 for the Leaves) I then Die Cut the Flowers using the coordinating Dies!! I LOVE the way they turned out!! Bright and Happy for Spring, but yet fit the Sentiment for a Calming Feeling!! I then cut an A2 top-folding card base from TE Toffee Cardstock!! I die cut and dry embossed a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Salt Water Taffy Cardstock for the base layer using the TE Stitched Rectangle Stacklets Die Set and the TE Weathered Embossing Folder!! Using the Stitched Rectangle Dies again I die cut a Sugar Cube Cardstock panel to stamp my faith-inspired sentiment from the NEW Words of Faith Easter Stamp Set!! I added some Ink Sponging with TE Potato Chip and Sweet Potato Pie  Inks to make the sentiment POP!! To assemble the card, I scored the Flowers at 2 1/4 inches and adhered the folded flower to the backside of the Salt Water Taffy Cardstock panel using Scor Tape!! I cut a piece of Paper Sweeties Seam Binding Ribbon in Cookie Dough about a foot long adhering the ribbon to the back of the panel to act as a closure!!  Then, I layered the completed floral panel onto the A2 card base, added the sentiment panel and tied my ribbon!! To finish the Cards I add the Prayers Script Die Cut Sentiment to the inside and I want to add a personal sentiment that say Prayers this Easter Season!! I REALLY LOVE the way they turned out and I'm EXCITED about them!! I hope they will BLESS someone who needs them this Easter Season!! 

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you'll join along in the Challenge!! I CAN"T WAIT to see what you create!! Have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!
