Spring Baskets

I created this card for this month's freebie challenge at Delightful Inspirations. The freebie is called Spring Baskets.  There are 3 basket images available in the set.  The one that I decided to use is the basket of flowers.
Hoppy Christmas by D2D

To create my card I began with a whirlpool card base.  I embossed a piece of white card stock cut just a little smaller than the card base.  I added a piece of aqua ribbon across the bottom.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir pens and backed it in whirlpool card stock. I added 3 aqua twinkle goosebumps to the upper corner.
