Easter's on it's Way!

Hello crafty peeps! I would like to say Happy Easter to all and share my very first Easter card ever, I also have a special bonus card from my daughter. For my creation I incorporated a few aspects from my shabby chic tutorial as did my mini me. I used a mixed medley of memory box dies. combining tiny tulips with the grassland border. The tulips were cut with yellow cardstock, then coloured with copics and glittered with stickles. I added lots of bows with some twine, then used my yellow pearl pen(which I think is the perfect shade of yellow for Easter).
