Easter at Rainbow Lady's challenge

Good morning folks, a quick post from me as  I'm not feeling 100% at the min, hopefully a lovely long weekend off work will do the trick and I'll soon feel better. Anyway here's my DT card for the lovely Cynthia's 'Easter' challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog. There's a fab prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor Joanna Sheen !

I've used backing paper from Prima (Madeline, I think) and one of the gorgeous new Baroque Egg stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I cut the gatefold shape with nesties (you can see a fab tutorial for this on Glenda Waterworth's blog here). I toned the backing paper down a bit with antique linen distress stain, The main image is stamped with Memento Bamboo leaves and colored with promarkers and coloursoft pencils. The sentiment is from the same set of stamps. The ribbon from Joanna Sheen and the roses from Wild Orchid

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
My Mum's Craft Shop: Easter/Animals
Top Tip Tuesday: Easter or Animals

Thanks for popping by
