First Easter card

Today is both a quick post and a quick card, as I spent most of my crafting time doing something a bit different for the next Crafts Galore Encore challenge which goes live on the first of March. I'm so excited to show it. Meanwhile, there is still time to participate in the current challenge, which is "Use a stamp or digi". 

After that shameless plug, onto today's card. With Christmas and Valentine's over and done with, the next cardmaker's main event is Easter. And the spring colours over at Color Throwdown were perfect for a spring card, and along with inspiration from the Stampin' Royalty inspiration pic and the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches I came up with this. I'm also linking up at Graph It Colour challenge where the theme is Spring/Green and Cute Card Thursday where the challenge is Floral Delight.
