Since it's April, I know this is going to sound funny, but I just couldn't bear to do a traditional green and red card. So, I chose a more muted, antique look and I picked up the Doves and Holly set.
You can see too, I also used the Christmas Music set for the background. I stamped the doves and then masked and stamped the music over top. Afterward, I colored it up with a mix of Copic Markers. I used a few from the Dahlia and Fields collections and then I highlighted the doves with the lighter shades of the Warm Neutrals. I also sponged ink around the circle using Old Paper Distress Ink. The next step is just matting it up. I did use the Spellbinders Labels One for my mat. I embossed and then sanded to continue that distressed look. Add some stitching and a bow and.... ta da! The Celebrate the Season sentiment is also from the Christmas Music set.
