Easter Egg Easel

I made this egg shaped card for my Mum for Easter.
I used Xcut dies to create the card, along with Papermania Capsule Collection papers and peach cardstock.  The stamped image (Crafty Impressions) was coloured with Promarkers and I used lots of Wild Honey Distress Ink on all the edges.  The sentiment is from the same set as the image, I die cut it with a Nestie to make the stopper element.  The flowers and leaves were made with Woodware punches and I finished off with some lace, ribbon, two bows and some gold gems.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
