Egg Blooming Tulips Easter Easel Card

Say that Title 5 times fast! lol  I had fun with this card with a cute svg of egg blooming tulips (thank you Cheryl for making this for me) svg is from
I decided to make it an easel card and with the help of some of my spellbinders Labels Twenty-Three dies I cut and embossed the striped background.  I also cut the easel stopper shape which I added a Happy Easter Sentiment to with my Cricut Explore Air using my Cricut fine tip pens and the Cricut Alphabet Font in Design Space before I cut it out with my spellbinder die and embossed it as well.
I also used my cuttlebug seeing spots embossing folder for the main purple background on this card.  Oh my Gosh!  Can I just say I just love the pattern paper I found for the eggs!
It looks like I dyed them myself in cups of egg dye in my kitchen lol.  That paper is from Ms. sparkle & Co. paperie called watercolor.  The tulips are just solid card stock scraps and then light green pattern paper scraps on the leaves.  I added some very light pink and white bakers twine around the bend of the card and tied a small bow.  I also added some flower jewel gems to each of the Easter eggs.
For the inside I used some cute pattern paper from a Recollection's stack called All Girl, that is where the striped pattern paper for the front came from also.  I did not have the cute sentiment that I wanted in a stamp set so I again created the sentiment with my explore air and my fine tip pens on some of the pink watercolor paper.   I then used a stitched rectangle die to cut that out for the inside portion of my card leaving plenty of room to hand write a message and sign my card.  I wanted to add a little extra something cute so I went to my stamp sets and found this adorable little girl dressed up in a bunny costume, I thought she set this card off perfectly!  To color her I used my spectrum noir markers  IG1, IG2, FS2, FS3, FS6, AP1, CT1 and MG2 for the nose.  She came out so adorable and I just can't wait to make some more cards with that stamp set.
Here is a view of the card front closed.
