Tilda with Flower in her Hair Challenge card

Happy weekend!!!! Phew....after a long evening, I finally finished this easel card I've planned for a week. I am making this card for a few challenges and here they are:

Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog Hop challenge - Spring theme with acetate
Just Magnolia Week #47 - Easel Card
Stampin For the Weekend #35 - Easter
Allsorts Challenge #44 - Spring is in the Air
C4C29 - Spring
Our Creative Corner - Think Easter
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #75 - Spring
Pollycraft Monday Challenge #36 - Sparkly things
The Pink Elephant #58 - Spring
A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #95 - Easter
Rosie-D's Challenge #66 - Spring
One Stop Craft Challenge #72 - Let it shine

Here is my finished card. Can you tell where is the acetate? Hint hint, I put the acetate through a crimper. Can you sort of see the vertical white lines on top of the red DP? You can see it closer for the rest of the pictures. I've used three Magnolia stamps on this card. The Tilda with Flower in her hair, Chicks, and Dot Butterflies and these stamps were all purchased at Magnolia-licious Store. I put a piece of acetate through a crimper to create a little texture background on top of the DP. Here are some pictures to show you the full card when it's on a display position and when it's closed.

Here is a closer view on Tilda's image and her coloring. I added stickle to make her eggs sparkly. Another closer view for the chicks' image.

Here is a closer view on the butterfly image. I colored 2 of these images and put one under the acetate and one on top to make a little 3D effect.

I also added a handmade flower using some coordinated DP.

Side view of this card.

Here is a shot to show you the card when it's opened fully.

Sorry for this long post with so many pictures, but I just wanted to show you as much as I can after spending a long long evening for this card :o)

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you like this card!
