Easter Wishes

Just a quickie today; I made this card for the Easter swap on Docrafts.

"Easter Wishes"

The gorgeous ribbon was sent to me in another docrafts swap and provided the starting point for this card. The background colours were chosen to match, then the stamping just seemed to follow naturally.

"Easter Wishes"

I've kept the design really simple to show off the gorgeous stamps from Indigo Blu and because the colours are a little unusual, with an orange sky! A little picket fence distress stain was added behind the area where the sentiment was stamped to help the wording stand out. The sentiment is stamped in sepia archival ink and heat embossed in clear. The other stamping is all done with distress inks in the same colours as the background. The ribbon is wrapped around the inked card and secured at the back before adhering to a dark green card blank. A second ribbon is added on top of the first with some very pretty, delicate flowers inked with distress colours to match the project.
