Valentine Easel Card

I've been seeing easel cards on almost every blog I've visited in the last few months.  The cards have been beautiful and wonderful.  I downloaded the instructions 4 weeks ago but haven't had the time to really sit down and create one.  While watching NCIS tonight I decided to find the time.

I chose the Sweet Sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday for my sketch.



I couldn't find the exact color of ribbon I wanted.  Either the ribbon was too wide for the card or the shade wasn't quite right.  While searching through my ribbon stash, I found a white fiber and a light bulb (75 watt) went off.  Why not use my pink ink and color it myself? 

So I laid down paper destined for the recycle bin and used my Color Box cat eye ink and colored that white ribbon.  It doesn't show in the photo but I didn't liberally color the ribbon.  This resulted in the ribbon having some white edges on the fiber.  I like the way it turned out.
