Really Reasonable Ribbon Spring and/or Easter Challenge

Hi there.  It’s time for another fun challenge over at the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog
This time we have a Spring and/or Easter Theme and don’t forget to add ribbons or trims to your project.

I had some glittery fun with this card which is very unlike me!  I’m not a fan of messy, but this is a fun technique to try.

I applied Stick It adhesive to the front side of my white cardstock and then I die cut my bunnies and Easter eggs.  Once cut, I removed the adhesive backing on each piece and applied Art Glitter Microfine Transparent Glitter in #711 Winter White.  I made sure to press the glitter on really well and shook off the excess.  Then I colored all the pieces with Copic Markers.  I then used a foam pad and stylus to gently shape the pieces for a bit of dimension.  I used foam tape to adhere the pieces to my card.

Cheery Lynn Dies Used:
B527 Bunnies
E669 Bird Nest & Eggs
B126 Grass Border
DL306 Dutch Daisy Oval Doily
L-7 Oval Classic
XL-7 Oval Classic Lge Nesting Die

My beautiful bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 using 5/8″ Wisteria Diamond Satin Ribbon and 5/8″ Rose Bloom Delicate Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also have a piece of 3/8″ Wildflower Grosgrain Ribbon running across the middle of the card.
