Cross Easter Blessings

Hey all,
Today's card has a cross stamp by Stampin Up amd sentiment stamps by Stamp N Plus. The patterned paper is by Stampin Up and Making Memories. The pink panel is dry embossed with an edge embossing folder by Darice which is done twice. Because my paper was skinny and the folder is skinny I could emboss one side and then take that side out of the Cuttlebug sandwich which keeps that side already embossed nice and perky. lol 

I stamped the cross stamp with Memento black ink onto Cryogen cardstock where I colored in the floral pattern with Copic markers. After I was finished with that I used a Spellbinders die to cut and emboss it into the perfect rectangle. The yellow edge is punched with a Stampin Up border punch. I found the pink organza ribbon in a clearance bin at a scrapbook convention. No name on the packaging to identify the company. The sentiment was originally made with the two words side by side. I decided I wanted more freedom with this sentiment and cut them apart. I also stamp the two on scrap paper before my project to make sure they are lined up. The word blessings comes in handy for other sentiments that I like to use on my cards.  

Thanks for looking.
