Think Spring With Riley

Happy Friday! I'm slowly working on posting all my cards I've made over the past few days for the Wish RAK Cards for the Troops challenges. Cards we make are shipped to one central person who then ships them to our heroes overseas. This way the soldiers have handmade cards to send home to family and friends.

This challenge was to make an Easter card. I realized that I don't have many Easter images but I had received Riley from WRAK so I was in business. Colored him in with Copic markers then cut him out and embossed with my Nestabilities. Darn if I can remember the name of the designer paper by Cosmo Cricket (something like Hey Sugar??), but I used it for my color inspiration - Bravo burgundy, White, Regal rose (this layer was Cuttlebug embossed), and Summer sunrise by Papertrey Ink. That is the color of grosgrain ribbon I used through the aged copper hardware frame as well. "Think Spring" is from a set of words by The Angel Company. A couple of dew drops and this one is ready to be shipped! I'll be posting more over the next couple of days.
