An Easter card - quick and easy

Oh, I'm so in love with Penny Black Stickeroos - thanks to Irene I could be going to bankrupt myself :( No sooner had a shed load of few sheets arrived here than Handy Hippo had 20% off on Thursday so I only ordered some Christmas ones! I made a couple the same of this Easter card:
Very quick and easy in between packing school newsletters - those are all posted now though, phew!

I used:

- C6 white linen card stock

- white linen card embossed with a sort of vine swirls pattern - well covered by the image etc. and it doesn't even show on the photo though so bit of a waste of time there :(

- Penny Black Stickeroo from 'Wherever they grow' sheet, really lovely images for Easter on this set

- little pieces of aqua card from the snippets folder

- ribbon from the ribbon box (bought recently with these cards in mind from Hobbycraft)

- 'Happy Easter' stamp by Funstamps, inked up using SU's Baja Breeze Ink Spot (remember that Sarn is a Stampin' Up demonstrator folks!)

And, that's about it. Hope you have a great weekend!

Snippets roll call day tomorrow in the playground :)
