Easter Cross Easel

I made loads of egg shaped easel cards last year and swore I never wanted to see another again, but what a difference a year makes, here's the first one of the season!
 I used Xcut dies to make the easel, then decorated it with papers, crochet trim and ribbon from Papermania's Parisian Blue Capsule Collection.  The crosses were die cut from two shades of blue card using Spellbinders dies, I then made some punched flowers to decorate the base of the cross.  I stamped a sentiment with a stamp from a Hobby Craft set on the stopper element and added a few pearls to finish.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
