A Easter Card for one of my Grandsons

I have four cards to create for my young grandsons (as well as the four for my granddaughters), and this is number one anyway I hope you like it.
Ive used two of the Easter Magnolia stamps from last year, and I stamped Edwin first then masked him to stamp the trolley for him to sit on. Then coloured them with my copic pens after which I punched him out with Nestabilitie Label Die Number 8, and created a mount by drawing around the die onto blue pearlescent card and cut it out with scissors. The sentiment is a Just Rite Stamp and I cut this out using a circle die and a pinking die for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card, with a first layer of blue card and one of two papers from the Easter Papermania paper set, the first layer is a green one with chickens and flowers on, the second one is a white paper with an edge of chickens and sentiments on, Ive cut of the edge and stuck that to the right hand side, and another piece for the bottom but Ive used my chick border punch from Martha Stewart, on top of this Ive put a strip of blue pearlescent card, and I ran this through my cuttlebug with an embossing folder first.
I then stuck my mounted image to the right hand side, and the sentiment to the top on the left, and to finish of Ive stuck a chicken button which I found in my craft stash on for an embellishment. I just realised I havent coloured in the sentiment button so will get onto it straight away.
