UTEE ODBD Easter Card

When I saw the sketch for this week's challenge at ODBD, I thought it'd work great for an Easter card.  I decided to try one of my UTEE colors I've had forever & never used.  It's called Opal Green & came out very light.  I don't know if it's supposed to be or lost color with age.  ODBD Vine Cross was pressed into the warm powder & some green shreds were added.  After it cooled, I pressed it flat allowing some cracks to form & added Versafine Vintage Sepia to the cross & sponged it over the cracks.  The piece was matted with a purple scalloped oval.  I die cut one of the ODBD Beautiful Borders, backed it with vellum & added shimmery purple ribbon.  I love the striped paper which I've had for many years.  

The edges were sponged with Distress Ink antique linen & the TPC Studio sentiment is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa.  A couple small brown pearls finish off the card. My weekend to work, so may be a little behind in reading your blogs. Thanks so much for stopping by.
