A quickie Easter card

Hi all,

A quick post from me today before a trip out with my little ones and their Grandma :o)

I've left it a bit late to make Easter cards and so to kick-start things I have made a quick and easy one.

Here it is....

I have used my new Sizzix card die to cut the card blank, a new embossing folder and a new 'Easter Wishes' stamps. The embossed background has been inked over with Mustard Seed and Wild Honey distress inks (hopefully to resemble daffodils!). The scroll-work panel was cut with a Marianne die. The sentiment was inked with distress inks as before and a yellow ribbon tied into a bow was added to complete this simple card.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
