Happy Easter

I made this card when Vincent and Jer were watching the EPL last night.  Jer told me, there are only 2 things that can really make papa happy : seeing his family happy and around him AND watching football!  Well Jer is the son Vincent always wanted, she would watch and discuss football with him.  It is good to see father and daughter bonding over football.

I tried something new with this card, instead of stamping the tulip pathway on a cardstock and adhere to the  pattern paper, I stamped it directly on to the pattern paper and coloured it with copic markers.  I am quite pleased with how it turned out.  I also used the ruching that I learned to make from Becca of Amazing Paper Grace,  glued flowers on the piece of ruched ribbon, making it looked like a bed of flowers in the foreground.

This card is for the following challenges :
1.  Simon Says challenge : its time for spring colours/Easter
2.  Reasonably ribbon - use dies, punches or ribbon
3.  ABC challenge : R is for ribbon
