On to the card... I made this cute little card yesterday for a challenge that required ribbons and pastel, however, by the time I got it all finished up, that challenge was already closed! :( So, I have been searching around and found some other challenges to enter it in and then it is going on to a friend of mine who has ordered a set of Easter cards. BTW, I am now taking Easter orders!

I am so pleased with the way this turned out! I even got to use my Copics for the first time! My hubby bought me a set for my birthday and I am soooo happy to finally bust them out of the box, but I really need to learn how to blend and how to properly use them so, homework time for me!
For this card I ended up using four different types of ribbon! Some came in kits that I have gotten and the cute tulip ribbon came from RRR. I just love it and thought it was perfect for this card. I put the green wavy ribbon below it to make it look like grass. I made a bow at the top so I could qualify for the "Tie a Bow" challenge over at My Craft Spot. This is the first challenge over there, ever! Yay! Fun blog, check it out. :0) The complete list of challenges I'm entering is at the bottom of this post.
I used a pretty pastel purple cardstock for the card from a stack that came from Joann's as well as the yellow cardstock. They are having stacks on sale for $2.00 now! If you shop online, please go through my site for special deals. http://www.amyjrockstar.com/ I would so appreciate it because I get credit for every sale made through my site and my clients get (sometimes) special benefits as well. In fact, if you do shop through Joann's through my site, please let me know and I'll come up with a little something special for ya! ;) The background paper came from my stash.
For the rest of the card: the bunny is a stamp from Sandylion (same set that I used for my previous butterfly card) that I cut out and colored with my Copics. The spring is a stamp from We are Memory Keepers: Maple Grove, and the Hoppy Easter is a stamp from Making Memories: Magnetic Stamp Sayings. Ink is a standard black from Colorbox. I also used my black Zig to add some definition and drew on some spots. :0)
The flowers are Prima and the brads are Basic Grey. I used my ATG gun and superglue for my adhesives and inked all my edges with a gorgeous Studio G eggplant color. Love those and they're only $1 at Michael's! That's where I get into my trouble is the dollar section of those stores. Before you know it, I have 50 things picked out, translating to $50! So easy to do!
Well, I hope you all have enjoyed my first little Easter card and please leave your comments. I read each and every one and it really just brightens my day.
