Simply Betty Stamps Facebook Fan Page April challenge

Good Morning my lovelies! If you are looking for my Drunken Stampers post, simply click here, or just keep scrolling down!

I was coloring this gorgeous image yesterday, and wanted to share the card I made with you all.

Here is the inside:

This is a free digi from Simply Betty Stamps called Elaine. You can get this for free (very generous!) when you join the Facebook Fan Page, and you must use the image! (no brainer there!) For the April challenge, you use the Elaine image plus ribbon and swirls on your card. I used a swirls embossing folder on the solid yellow panel and that gorgeous green crinkle ribbon. Finished the inside with the sentiment and another swirl stamp and I was done!

My card is based on sketch #83 by Freshly Made Sketches.

Thanks for stopping by! It looks to be a beautiful day today and I may spend it outside planting flowers (or at least getting the flower beds ready for planting!) Have a wonderful weekend!
