Spring card

Today's card is perfect for a Spring day that is very unlike the one I'm experiencing today (rainy, cold and dreary). I first thought of having the girl sit on a plain ribbon but when I saw this scrap of leaf ribbon I had to give it a try - I must say I'm quite pleased with how well it looks, especially against the transparent background.

I used a Magnolia stamp image that I coloured with Copics, then fussy-cut and popped up - you can't see in the photo but she is actually very 3-D (top layer: legs, middle layer: dress & hair, bottom layer: face & arms). In honour of Earth Day, I cut the acrylic insert from some packaging that was headed to the garbage!

  • Magnolia Stamps - image
  • Spellbinder nestabilities
  • DCWV Citrus set - patterned paper
  • rub-on sentiment (stash)
  • ribbon (stash)
