A Card for Totally Tilda's Challenge - "Easter Card Special"

Good Morning Ladies well Im actually early this morning for a change but thats because I made this card last night while hubby was at his radio club, anyway todays card has been created for the Totally Tilda Challenge "Easter Card" and Ive used this sweet image of Tilda, masked her and stamped the Easter Egg behind her afterwards coloured her with my copic pens and cut her out with my rotatrim. The sentiment is another of the Magnolia stamps and has been treated as the stamped image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of purple pearlescent card, and then used three papers from Donna's Bearlymine Digi Papers, the bottom one is one of Donna's new design one called "Spring Flight" which will be availiable on the 15th February, as I said yesterday they are stunning and you wont go wrong as they are so pretty, this one has a yellow base with green leaves with a dragon fly pattern, its not to easy with my photo as the flash unfortunately glares a bit, anyway on top of this I have used a green spotted strip on top of which is a mauve plaid one, on both these two I have used the Easter Chick border punch from Martha Stewart,  then theyve been placed across the middle of the base layer and around the edge Ive wrapped a dark purple seam binding ribbon.
I then stuck my mounted image towards the left and my sentiment below to the right, I then created a triple bow and stuck a pearl brad through the middle and stuck it on top of the ribbon that was wrapped around the middle. To finish of I die cut two dragonflies with the Doo Hickey dies and stuck them either side at the top.

Hallo Shirley, I just love this card and the one in the post below, I went to comment on it last night and the broadband went down, turns out it affected the whole area, but It's all okay now, yippee. Thoses dragonflies look super with the metallic/pearlescent sheen paper/card, just think they set off the card perfectly. Hugs heidi.x
