One Card for Two Challenges - Just Magnolia and Stampin for the Weekend

Well its another single card for two challenges, the first Just Magnolia - "Easel Card" and Stampin for the Weekend - "Easter", and Ive used this new Easter image from Magnolia, its so cute and thought it would make a lovely Easter card for my daughter.
Ive stamped her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, because shes to big for a large oval Ive cut around her feet and popped the image over the edge of the Nestabilitie die then punched her out. The mount is one of the new Big Scalloped Ovals from Spellbinders. The sentiment is another of the Magnolia stamps thats been done in the same way as my image.
The base easel card is a 7"x 7" card and created in the normal way, I dont have the link to it at the moment but I know that one of my old postings has it. Ive used some papers from the Nitwit Download Collections, by the way theyve got a sale on at the moment if you are interested. The main two base layers are of a lovely yellow sentiment patterned paper mounted onto a piece of yellow card, and then Ive used a green patterned paper and my rabbit border punch along the two edges and stuck these across the bottom of both these base layers, on top of this Ive used a strip of green card and another of the papers, this one has an all over easter egg pattern, and for the top layer Ive used two pieces of lace that have been stuck to the back of this strip before being stuck to my card.
For the outer card Ive stuck my mounted image to the left hand side, and Ive created a floral spray from some of my stash, and stuck them to the top on the left. For the inner layer Ive created two buttons with my I-top gadget and pushed them through two holes on the same green strip, before sticking it down across on top of the rabbit border, and then my sentiment was stuck in the centre of the two buttons.
