Creative Card Chicks

First--Happy Easter to all of my blogging friends!

This is my card for April's Monthly Challenge for the Creative Card Chicks.  This group is a kind of mystery image swap, where we each get an image and additional items to complete the challenge each month. 

Kelly H. the hostess this month and sent everyone this great spring image for us to make a Thinking of You or Sympathy card. She also sent pretty patterned paper along with other cute embellishments.  Kelly also embossed a couple of strips of cardstock so that is on the bottom of my card.

Here is the inside of my card, with one of the sentiments Kelly sent:

The Creative Card Chicks are to post our cards between the 21st and 23rd of each month--so if you check the blogs on my sidebars, you may see more of these wonderful creations! Many of our members also post their card in our SCS thread--so you might find more there.  We will be back next month and Joyce is the hostess, so be sure to come back and join us again in May!
