Totally Tilda DT MW #68 Shaped card

Happy Easter everyone!
I hope you are all enjoying a fab Easter day with friends, family or a bit of piece and quiet to yourself ;) Whatever you're doing, maybe you'll be interested to know that over at 
we are halfway through our current challenge
 'Shaped cards'
 which still leaves plenty of time for you to make something beautiful to enter. As long as your card shape is not square or rectangular and Tilda is the main image then you could be winning our fab prize or be picked as one of the DT's top three!

Well, on to the creation I made this week, a double circle easel:

I used my Grand Nestie scalloped circle dies again for both the base easel and DP layers, the flowered yellow paper is BG and the flowered blue paper is SU. All the cut butterflies are using a Sizzix SU Embosslits die called Beautiful Wings which embosses them with different patterns too.

For the left hand part of the card I masked Tilda with eggs in her apron and Spring background, mounted the finished DI coloured image on kraft cut into nestie lacy circle shape, then added cheesecloth behind it.

This is the right hand side of the card. I masked Tilda carrying a lamb and tulip wheelbarrow, cut another nestie lacey circle out of kraft and added more cheesecloth.

I glued my two separate circle easel cards together and made a centrepiece for a tag sentiment using nestie labels sixteen, tied two Sizzix tags to a piece of lemon ribbon and added WOC flowers.

As you know we are lucky to be sponsored by The Ribbon Girl for this challenge

Challenges I would love to enter:
Magnolialicious - Spring
Midweek Magnolias - Favourite stamp: Tilda carrying a lamb because not only is she a dream to colour but she's a spring stamp and it has to be my favourite time of year!

That concludes my Easter creations for this year, I've loved using the spring colour combos - I hope spring weather is just round the corner now :) The sun was definitely shining when I took the pictures of this card which was a very welcome sight after all the snowy grey skies.
The kids are having their usual Easter egg hunt around the house this morning and although I haven't had time to bake yet, I'm looking forward to doing some Easter baking with them this week. Now that I'm working, I appreciate the time off more these days and with working at a preschool I get the best of both worlds as I'm off when they are :)
Thanks so much for popping by and taking a look at what I've been up to, I hope you find time to join us at Totally Tilda, and enjoy the week ahead
