IDIC - A recipe!

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you're all having a nice Bank Holiday weekend! This week at I Did It Creations, we have a lovely receipt for you to follow! We want to see 1 image, 2 Papers, and 3 embellishments!
Our lovely sponsor this week is Sylvies stamps, and I got to play with this lovely Kokeshi Dolls image for my project!
I've used Acetate for the front panel of this card, together with two papers from the Dovecraft Eastern Promise paper collection. The image is coloured with Promarkers, as usual! I've used a stamp by Fiskars for the greeting, which is cut with Nestabilities labels 7 along with the paper underneath it. I've inked around the edges of the papers with Antique Linen Distress ink. The ribbons are from stash, (red underneath and gold stripey on top) the tree branch is a Sizzix Die, and the little blossoms on the branch are made with an x-cut punch.

Thanks for visiting :)
