Monochrome easter card

Evening everyone. I know it's late on tues but as hubby is on nights this week it makes it difficult to craft and blog during the day as craft and computer area are right outside bedroom! Anyway today I have followed the cute sketch over on crafty sentiments and they also wanted a monochromatic theme. I'm also putting this forward for the totally gorjuss challenge to use ribbon. I have unconventionally used my thick stampin up ribbon as if it were patterned paper this time.

I have used PP from papermania capsule collection. Flowers from Mulberry crafts Mcgill branch punch, computer sentiment ripped and a cute free digi image from Sliekje she has free images all the time on her blog and they are really cute! I have inked and ditressed all edges and used orange stickles on the eggs and flowers (it looks kinda like golden eggs!)

This is my first easter card so far, I doubt I will have time to make many!! Anyway thanks so much for taking the time to come by and look and for leaving your comments, hugs to all xxx
