Celebrate Easter

I created this Easter card using Tilda With Eggs from Magnolia Stamps. I used this week's sketch from The Sweet Stop.  The spin was to use the color green. I started with a card base of lily pond
green.  I added a piece of white card stock cut just a little smaller than the base of the card.  I punched a piece of lily pond card stock using an eyelet lace border punch.  I punched a piece of vineyard card stock using the eyelet lace border punch and added it to the bottom of the green.  I added a purple dotted ribbon just above the punched area. I cut a square piece of pastel purple card stock and backed it in white and added it to the left side of the card.  I colored the image in crayola and prisma color pencils and backed it in vineyard card stock.   I added it to the left side of the card.  I stamped the sentiment "CELEBRATE EASTER" onto the lily pond cardstock beside the image and above the ribbon.  I layered 2 purple paper flowers and added a grass green rhinestone to the center and added it to the bottom corner of the image.  I added a butterfly cut out of the lily pond card stock, and added 3 purple rhinestones and added it just above the flowers.   I added a pastel purple butterfly with 3 grass green rhinestones above the sentiment.  I added 3 grass green rhinestones to the pastel purple card stock and 3 purple rhinestones to the bottom corner of the card.
