Easter egg hunt and card

Hiya there - I'm just starting this post now but will have to complete it later - my two little munchkins are snapping at my heels ready to go out on an Easter egg hunt at  alocal village - more about that later. We've been and returned - the girls both got a chocolate egg and mum and dad got a lovely walk! Fab!

I've got a card to show you today that I made using my new x cut die from my prize that came yesterday - it worked very well I'm pleased to say and hopefully this is the first of many postings relating to it!

This last minute Easter card was made so I had one to send to my sister -in-law down in Kent. I just realised she'd somehow managed to not get one! whoops!
Anyway, I've stamped and coloured in Tilda and cut her out to sit ontop of a giant Easter Egg. I've put this onto an easel card with lilac lace and my xcut purple spikey circle on it and added the rabbit too! The papers were free from simply card making and papercraft this issue - they are part of the nitwits range. On the base of the easel I've done a purple strip of mirri card stuck onto more papers and then along the edges I've done faux stitching. Finally I've added a bow to prop up the easel.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

DYSU #65: Sew it:
TOMIC #43 Easter
Totally Papercrafts: Easter.
Just Magnolia: Springtime

That's all for now - just hope you all enjoy the rest of your Saturday and have a fabulous Sunday!
