Yellow and blue together are perfect for an Easter card...
The flower stems were stamped directly onto the scalloped rectangle (cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die), and then the flowers were popped up on some foam squares.
I actually didn't have any yellow ribbon other than some 1/8" stuff, so I colored a piece of 1/4" white ribbon with my yellow Spectrum Noir marker. It worked perfectly, and gave me the ribbon I needed in just the right color.
Have you ever colored ribbon with an alcohol marker? You can color white, of course, but you can actually color any ribbon as long as the marker you're using is a darker shade than the ribbon. I've even colored black and white patterned ribbon with markers.
The inside sentiment on my card is some lovely word art from Hannelie (Desert Diva). You'll find her blog here and her Easter sentiments here. I really love her work and have been using it a lot on my Easter cards.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
