An Easter Card for Maisey

Hiya peeps,

Today I would love to show you a card that I made yesterday.  Unfortunately though, my laptop is playing up and wont let upload any photos from my laptop!! Im really annoyed as the card has turned out so girly and lovely.  I will, however, keep trying and add the photos as soon as I can. OK, its now Monday evening and Ive finally been able to upload the photos of Maisies card.

The card base I used is an extra large DL in the landscape setting when I added
the topper, coloured in using Harmony Alcoholic pens. This was foam pads stuck to the pink backing topper, which was glued to the actual card base. I made a small slit just slightly wider than the ivory organza ribbon so I could thread the ribbon through to secure on the inside back, the bottom of the card end of the ribbon was also secured on the inside back of the card. The spotty flower is from a new packet that I bought from The Works bargain shop. The faux pearl is from my own stash and is 20mm wide. The 2 ladybugs, button & charm, are also from my own stash.

PS:  My sincere apologies to The Cutting Cafe, as I havent given details of the image I have used for this card. Its called Wheelbarrow Deliveries Printing Set and even if you dont have a cutting machine, most if not all of their images are available as PDF's so you can cut them out by hand as I did.
