Easter Blessings

Hiya folks!

Happy Friday to you all. My hubby is especially happy, as he finishes his job today. Don't fret - he has another one to go to, but he has a week off first! He decided we couldn't afford the fuel costs of getting to Inverness and back every day (100 mile round trip) so looked for something closer to home. Lucky thing being an MOT Tester - not too many of them about, and most places need one!! (phew!)

Down to the business at hand then, which is a new theme over at the
This time we are after
'Ribbon for Easter',
and we have a sponsor in the shape of Crafty Ribbons. Thanks peeps!

I chose to use my 'Cross and Roses' image for this one, but I have kept the main part of the card very simple. Just a base yellow in a pearlescent finish, with my image printed in a green colour with green frame and text all in one layer. The yellow fade behind the image was placed there in my dp package before printing. Thought that would be easier than trying to colour that bit in! LOL

Then I coloured the cross image and the flowers, scanned and printed the whole thing, and an extra layer for some popped up bits. Added some stickles to the cross for some bling, some gems to the corners and a ribbon bow. Like I said, nice and simple today. Here is a close-up:
