Happy Easter

Good morning all. (Well it was morning when I started this! I've had a succession of tradesmen here since 8am, last one left at 2pm and then hubby took me out to lunch.) Hello and welcome to all my new followers, I hope you'll pop in often.
It's a bit miserable here today and the painters have both doors open for painting! Here's a card I made a few days ago.


Apart from the ribbons everything came out of my bit box including the base card which had an inky front and image (leftover from last Easter). Image is from Joanna Sheen's Cardmakers Year CD (I think!). The thin white ribbon is recycled off a garment.

Karen's Doodles - pastel + Easter
Joanna Sheen's Forum M15 - green and yellow snippets
