An Easter Easel Card

I was lucky enough to win a challenge over at Doodle Palace and have been asked to set this Tuesdays challenge. This is one of my example cards, an Easel Easter card for the challenge.

The lovely purple papers are some old scraps from papermania papers I have had lurking around for ages. The image is a cute little clear stamp from Little Claire which I have coloured in with Promarkers. The sentiment is a peel off stuck onto a label cut out with one of my nestability sets.
The lilac ribbon with little white spots was from a local craft shop near me which is unfortunately closing down, I also made a bow with the same ribbon and stuck this on top . I have used my Lace Doily Martha Stewart punch for the piece of card on the card base so that the easel part stays upright. I have stuck 3 little ducks on top of that. I have also added four really tiny and cute lilac coloured buttons.

I will never get rid of any of my nestability dies or this super cute stamp
