A Magnolia Card for Easter

I've been busy over the past couple of weeks, and not in making cards.
 The GCSE exams are fast approaching and I'm trying to cram two years school knowledge of multiple subjects, into one carefree teenager, over one month.
 Now that's going some! 

I've painted Tilda with distress inks and framed her with Spellbinder Dies, adding a couple of little pearly hearts. The basket is a doohickey die from an Autumn box, the leaves are also.

Flowers are a mix from my stash, gathered over the years. I found some daffodils  hiding in one of the boxes and they add a nice splash of colour to match the chicks.

The papers are Maja and the shape has been cut using Go kreate dies.
There is some cotton lace, a doily and a double bow with a pearly centre.

                    This has been a short post, hopefully a longer one when I have more time.
Hope you like the card
