Hoppy Easter

Hello friends & followers!  I have been really bad about making Easter cards this year, so when I saw My Time Made Easy;s Pretty Patterns Sketch 53 I had the inspiration I needed to make this card using Taylored Expressions' 'Hello Spring" set:
I have a cute little 'Hoppy Easter!' sentiment on the inside.  I like this pretty lime sheer ribbon with a satin edge that I scored at the Offray-Berwick ribbon outlet in Hagerstown, MD - seriously, if you live remotely near this place, and you like ribbon, it is worth the trip.  I added some orange flowers (something I rarely use) to give it an additional springy feel and added pearl centers.  After a tutorial using Bic Mark-It alcohol markers on Stamp TV I figured I would give them a try and see how they measured up to Copics.. not bad, but I don't think they blend quite as easily.  Might not be a bad option for folks on a serious budget.  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:


Thank you for stopping by to view my creations!  Have a great night!
