Easter wishes

Spring is upon us, and I LOVE everything about spring (minus the occasional rain shower. LOL). I decided to create an easel card to showcase all the things I love about spring (flowers, bright colors, sunshine, love, Easter, ect.).
I Love the way this card turned out! I used some of my new Prima papers, Sweet Fairy. The colors are just to die for, so bright and cheery. I used TONS of Magnolia things on this card, and Tilda with Many Hearts is such a versatile image, I wanted to use her to show how many things I love about spring! She can be found at Magnolia-licious, but it looks like she is out of stock at the moment.
Here is the front panel of the easel card. I used so many different embellishments, I just couldn't stop!!! LOL. I used some of my seam binding, in yellow (LOVE this stuff), for the yellow bow in the top corner, and more on the inside panel. The pink pearls/lace is a GORGEOUS lace I found at Michael's made by Recollections. It was the perfect belly band for this card. The color matched just perfectly to the papers, and I love how it looks. So pretty. The flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts. Yellow and Pink 25mm roses, Yellow and pink Cherry Blossoms. The leaves I punched out with my Martha Stewart frond punch. I also used a Martha Stewart Monarch punch for the butterflies. Gotta have butterflies on a spring theme card!!! Light pink rhinestones were added to all the corners and really, anywhere they would fit!!! LOL
I cut out the image panel with my Labels 10 Nesties. I colored up Tilda with copics
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Dress and Boots - Y15, Y13, Y11, Y00 (Diamond stickles were added to the lace of her dress for added shimmer)
Hearts - R83, R81 (I added my clear Atyou Spica pen on the hearts for some shimmer)
The bottom panel was done using more of the patterned paper and embellishments from the front panel. I also used some of my Magnolia dies for added embellishment, they can be found at Magnolia-licious. I added Tilda Lace Doohickey Die for the border, and the Vintage Tag Die for my sentiment. The sentiment stamp is from a Hero Arts stamp set I have in my stash.
