An Easter Card

Today, after housework and before dashing off to pick my son from his 'O' Level exam, I managed to squeeze in some crafting time and did another Easter Card.. a rather quickie one, but of course with lots of thinking for me ...

In fact I coloured this stamp twice, because after colouring it I decided I didn't like it and so did another one, but then when I showed them both to my son, he said he liked the first one most and so after all, I decided to do my card with the first one I coloured he he :) 

The stamp is Bildmalarna, first time using one of these cute stamps.. and only one I have too..  errm don't say where I've been.. I know I know... he he :)  I coloured it with my promarkers and added some glitter today.

The lovely paper is from the Papermania Spring Pack ... I decided to cut out the easter eggs from the paper and popped them up with foam, really loved how it turned out...not sure about the bow though. Not usual for me to do such big bows on my cards, and then hubby said it's too large as well mmm !!! 

I am entering my card in these EASTER themed challenges today.
