WSC35 - Easter Blessings


Here is my card for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge 35 - I totally look forward to doing these although I didn't have to work yesterday, I was BUSY getting ready for my stamp club today. I will post a few projects from that tomorrow. I really like Gina K's Baskets of Happiness because you can use it for more than just Easter but for this card I knew I wanted to make it Easter so I chose Apricot Appeal, Almost Amethyst and Always Artichoke for my colors. I colored my image with prismas/gamsol and what do you think about my background piece? I totally made it! Yesterday as I was cutting my Just so Hoppy set, I had quite a bit of leftover pieces and since they're on cling foam, thought I could make my own background, sort of like a mosaic or stained glass? I used craft ink so it would show up well. This is what I did:
Lastly, I used my new StylizeD Silver Hodgepodge ribbon slide, rectangle nestabilities and my Ornare piercing template (which I believe I got from Ellen Huston, LLC but I just looked for it to get the link and it's not there, sorry).
