My one and only Easter card!

Hello everyone and happy Saturday to you.  Will someone please let mother nature know that it was meant to be the first day of spring on Thursday cos its so darn cold and dreary I think she's forgotten! 
Anyway, as my title suggests I don't really do Easter cards so don't have that many images but had a rummage in my Magnolia's and came across this little beauty and then also found the background stamp which I'd forgotten I had, followed the fab sketch over at Mojo Monday and this is what I came up with.  
Images: Magnolia Tilda and Stampavie 'Easter scenery'
Medium:  Copics/Promarkers
Papers:  First Edition 'Spring Drop'
Corners: Nellies Multi frames corners
Flowers:  Magnolia Doohickey 'Vintage Daisies', WOC
Butterflies:  Martha Stewart punch
A side view up next.  All papers have been matted onto coloured cardstock from The Papermill Direct.  I'm obviously the last to know about this place but will now be bulk ordering all my coloured card from here -  the value is fantastic as is the service and the colours are gorgeous.  I've also just found out they have a challenge going to so have popped the link below as well.
Last piccie is a close up of the images, love them together.  You can just make out the fab vintage daisies.  I've been wanting this die for a long time and treated myself so you will probably be seeing a lot of it.

Copics/Promarkers used:
Purples:  V12, V15, V17
Pinks:  RV00, RV02, RV17
Greens:  YG11, YG13, YG67
Yellow:  Y21, Y17
Blues:  Promarkers Artic Blue, Sky Blue and Glacier Blue (flexmarker)
Browns:  E31, E33, E35, E37, E29
Challenges I would like to enter:
Okay I'm going to go now.  I think the kiddies are going to be having an early night tonight (for their sake and for mine!!!!).  They have been on at each other all day over stupid things so a good nights sleep is in order and we can start afresh tomorrow!
I hope you are all managing to stay warm and if you have the bad weather stay safe.
Take care,
