happy easter

Good morning! I have an Easter card to share today; this image actually has coordinating birthday sentiments but I think it's fun for Easter too! I've colored the image with pencils and accented the dots and her eyelids with glitter. I kept it clean and simple and went with one of my favorite "stand-by" layouts. I've added a sentiment, ribbon, and pearls for embellishment.

I have a tip to share! Sometimes the patterned paper will show through the ribbon; see the right side of the photo, you can see the dots. Now check the left dots!  Simply cut a piece of cardstock the width of the ribbon, add a touch of glue, and slide it under the ribbon. It's a quick and easy fix and makes the finished card look more polished.

Here's a close-up of the finished card:

Paper: G.P. 110 CS, PTI Stamper's Select and Harvest Gold CS, Doodle Bug Sweet Spots CS
