Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge DT - Easter


Good morning!  It is time for another challenge over at Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps and this fortnight our theme is Easter/spring.  As you can see I have made an Easter card using the gorgeous new Doobeepops paper from Magnolia.  This paper is so much fun to use!  I have also used the gorgeous paper from the Easter collection too.
I have used lots of stunning flowers from the Ribbon Girl - aren't they gorgeous!?  The leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
I punched out some of the paper to make the sentiment and the butterflies are both Martha Stewart punches too.
I have used more flowers from the Ribbon Girl along with a feather in the top corner of the card too.
Here's a close up of the egg.  I have used some gorgeous taffeta ribbon and a blossom from the Ribbon Girl to decorate the egg.  You may have noticed that the egg is held onto the card with twine...
...spin it around and the look of the card completely changes so you have two cards in one!
For the other side of the egg I have used the gorgeous Exclusive Egg #439 stamp from Magnolia, coloured with copics.
I hope you like my card and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's amazing creations.  
As always Diana is sponsoring us with a fantastic prize so you don't want to miss it!  Thanks for looking! x

Fantastic card! ...the doobeepops grom Magnolia is quite impressive! ... then the fact that you have 2 cards in 1 turn around the twine is great! ;)

Hi Jane,
You always give us plenty of inspiration - never worry :o)
Your card is amazing. How smart of you to make your egg two sided. They are extremely different but both are beautiful.
I can never get over your flower sprays - you know exactly how many to put on and arrange them beautifully.
Big Hugs, Candy
