Easter Blessings

I don't usually make Easter cards (it is just not a way that we have ever celebrated Easter) but since both the Timeless Tuesday #152 challenge and the Delightful Sketches challenge were to create Easter projects, I decided to give it a go. I think I will send it to my Grandmother; grandmothers are the ones who think to send Easter cards, right? The stamps are from an old Flourishes set. I'm not even sure they carry it anymore. I had yet to ink it up and wasn't really sure about it anyway. But I think it turned out really beautiful. I used the Pretty Patterns #54 sketch and its simplicity left the perfect spot for this large stamp. I actually had to cut slits for the ribbon so it wouldn't cover up the top of the cross, but I think it adds to the design. After I had it all colored, I stamped the musical score strip from Skipping Stones Design's "Timeless Textures" set. I stamped it off on scrap paper before stamping onto my panel to tone down the color a bit.
