The Dutch Magnolia Chickies

Hi all - today I am posting a card over at The Dutch Magnolia Chickies for there 'Funny' challenge as a guest designer after being choosen for Top 3 on their previous challenge - so chuffed it's the first time I've guest designed for a Magnolia challenge! 
I have actually been thinking this card through for a while now as I wanted to make a shaped easel with pop-up elements (something I've never done before). So I used this beautiful 'Happy Easter' background with the 2 cute little bunnies 'Ballerina Bunny Tilda' and 'Tilda hiding Easter Egg' from this years Little Easter collection...

The papers are from the Crea Dream collection by Maja Design. The shaped die is by Go Kreate Frilly Frame #5 & the ornate ovals are by Spellbinders.  Images are coloured with Distress Inks & highlighted with Crystal Glamour Dust.
The quote is from a HOTP CD rom - I was origionally going to use a garden themed quote, but when I heard about guest designing for The Dutch Magnolia Chickies 'Funny' challenge I choose this one instead & actually it works muich better!
Katie (who actually won the MDUC challenge last time!) was helping me with the pop-up elements as she had just made a very simelar card, so please go & see her pop-up shaped easel using the link below as it is a real stunner.
Thankyou for your help & kind words Katie.x
