Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge - Tilda's Spring Easter Card

Good morning and yes I am still in California for a few more days enjoying my vacation for resting before heading back to Canada. Meanwhile, hope you all had a great weekend. Are you all ready for Easter yet? Well, I sure am ready for the upcoming Easter holiday. By the way, when you are reading this post, I am actually in San Francisco enjoying the vacation with my family. (I pre-scheduled this post) This month's Inspiration Challenge over at Magnolia-licious Challenge is host by our talented DT member Angela. She chooses this picture below for this inspiration challenge. All you have to do is to look at this picture below to get some inspirations and then to create a project to join us along. Remember one lucky winner will win a $25.00 gift certificate from Mangolia-licious Store.



I am using this card for other challenges as well, please scroll down to the bottom of this post for those challenges.

Love the soft colors of the above picture. After seeing these eggs, I came up with a card using Tilda with Flower in Her Hair with a combination of the Magnolia Doohicky Die and Nestibilities Oval dies. I tried to use some softer colors to match up with the Easter eggs.



Here is a closer view of this cute image

Here is the inside view. I added some lace trim and a couple of embroidery flowers to add some spring touch on this card.
