Spring break

The public schools in our state are having a spring break....which is wonderful because the weather is perfect - sunny with a bit of chill in the air and the kids are having a blast. It is, of course, not so great for my creative side. A bit difficult to sit inside, conjuring up images of a perfect card when I can hear the kids running around the house :)
But, the brave soul I am, I did manage to come up with this card which I rather like.

This is an easel card, which I love making - very little extra effort and the receiver is usually impressed with it :) The papers are from K&Company. For the ribbon - type embellishment ( I don't know how else to describe it ), I used the pendant in Spellbinders Fluer de lis Accents and cut each in to half, covered it with a strip of paper and viola......

The image is Penny Black - Baby Hammock. I colored it using my vast collection pencils - some prismacolor, some water color and some plain overflow from my children's desk drawers !! Also used chalk pastels for shading and distressing.
