Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Easter Greetings

Good evening!  I hope you're having a lovely weekend.  It is time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week our theme is Easter Greetings.  I'm so excited to show you my card, I really love how it turned out!  It's funny because we don't really give out Easter cards and so when I saw I had several DT challenges calling for Easter cards I was a little stumped on what to create and then suddenly I made two cards that I love in one evening!  I think sometimes a challenge that we're not keen on really kick starts the mojo!  I love this so much I think I will keep it to display on my mantlepiece every Easter!  I have used Magnolia papers for the Easter eggs behind the image.
I've coloured Tilda hiding easter egg #297 with copics and added stickles to the easter egg.  You can probably tell I am trying to emulate the amazing Chris Dark's stunning background scenes on this card!  Whilst I don't think I will ever reach Chris' level I certainly enjoyed myself creating this little background.  I just felt Tilda needed to be hiding (or maybe finding) her sparkly egg in a beautiful spring meadow.  I have used copics for the background and then acrylic paint for the daisies and buttercups.
I added a spray of gorgeous spring flowers from The Ribbon Girl and a cute border of bunny rabbits using a Martha Stewart punch.
The Happy Easter sentiment is from hAnglar & sTanglar stamped with victorian velvet distress ink and the cute little bow is from my gorgeous friend Louise.
More spring flowers on the right hand side and I have added some punched leaves and the doohickey fence #12.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us with your Easter creations.  Pop over to the blog to be inspired by the rest of my amazing teamies!  Thanks for looking! x
