Easter Surprise

Hello everyone,
Hope all you mums had a wonderful day yesterday, I did! My mum was over the moon with the card I made for her, it makes it so worthwhile when someone special appreciates your craft. Got a lovely card to show you today, I'm really pleased with how it turned out, could have added a lot more but didn't want to ruin it!
It's two shutter cards joined together and I had such a lot of fun creating it! As it's an easter card I thought I would give it to my children whilst still keeping it at a safe distance! They would tear it apart if I literally 'gave' them it but they can look!

This is what the card looks like closed up:

It was great fun to make as I got to use some new stash, my new stamps and only bought the doo hickey on Saturday! I plaited some of the ribbon and overstamped the layers behind the spring background.

I used the following to make my card:
Magnolia Stamps: Spring Background, Tilda with eggs in apron, Tilda with newly hatched chick
Magnolia Doo Hickey - Antique Lace
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Basic Grey Curio Papers, cardstock from stash
brads, buttons, ribbon and silver gel pen from stash
SU: inks, blossom punch and leaf/stem punch, swirl/bee stamps
flowers given to me by my friend Fleur (thanks so much xx)
nestability labels 9

I had the following fantastic challenges in mind while I was making this card:
Magnolia-licious Highlights - Easter Spring Extravaganza #1 Catagory Full size image on easter themed card
Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar - WK100, Simon says Stamp Special Monthly Challenge and DT call - Anything Goes plus buttons (optional extra)
Basic Grey - Challenge 41 Use more than one fold
A Spoonful of Sugar - Easter

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look, your comments are always appreciated.
Love Nicola xxx
