A beautiful Easter card in blue and green

For this card I used a digitl image of a cross from Clipartkid which I laser printed on ivory and punched with my 1.75" round punch (SU).  I went looking in my stash for something to layer it to and found these two large scallops that I very much liked together.  It took a while to convince myself that I did not need to add another layer in between.  I like the space!!  I chose a soft blue card and added this soft decorative leafy paper (inside of a used card) as a background.  I added some organza ribbon adhering both ends to the inside of the card and then adhered my focal element over the ribbon using 3D foam tape.  I punched the label from the green layer before I glued my focal element together which insured that it was exactly the right colour.  I layered a small laser printed greeting to the green label and then adhered it to my card front below the focal element.  To finish off my card I tied a short length of the same ribbon to the length on my card using one knot to simulate a bow.
Happy with this one too!              Therese
