I was planning on posting these 2 cards yesterday, but was away all day, so thought I best get these posted today.  Easter is early this year so only had time to make 2 Easter cards.

For both cards I'm using MFT die-namic lily dies. 

For my first card I used Spellbinders A2 Filigree delight die, and cut this out of a soft green. For the lily's they were cut from white c/s and then I used copics to do the colouring.

The banner is from PTI and the sentiment is from Flourishes. I added some clear sequins to finish off.

For my second card, I cut the lily's from white c/s then colour using  peach and pink copic markers.
Isn't the background die cut stunning?  My BFF Nancy gave it to me as part of my birthday gift.  I love the cut areas along with the embossed.  This die is by Jeanine's Art.  Not sure where Nancy purchased this one, but I see that Die's R Us carries these dies, you can find them under Find It Trading.

I have since found a few more of these types of dies and scooped them up.

To finish off this card I added some clear sequins and an enamel dot.  Banner and sentiment same as above.

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter.  Thanks for your visit today.

Oh, my word! I'm away for one day and look what I find when I come back... gorgeousness!! Those lilies are soooooo pretty the way you colored them all delicately. And, WOW, that die on your second card!! I went over to DRU and found several of this style a few pages down in the Find It category. Now I have to decide which ones to add to my wish list. LOVE how you've used it with the lilies. Your friend knows you so well! Two exquisite cards, Pauline!

Stunning! The background dies on BOTH of these are amazing, but I certainly understand why you love the second so much. Beautiful texture and added detail.
