New Challenge At Simply Magnolia - Easter Goodness!!!

Good afternoon, crafty blogger's.
We have a new challenge starting today at Simply Magnolia and this time our 
challenge theme is Easter Goodness!!!
We would like you to use anything related to Easter, rabbit, chicks, Easter eggs etc...
Oh, and please do not forget a Magnolia image.

Our wonderful sponsor for this challenge is the lovely ladies from The Ribbon Girl. Mary & Andrea who are giving away a £10 voucher to one lucky winner to spend in their scrummy store.

For our challenge I have made a shaped card featuring Tilda With Mr Rooster from The Little Easter Collection 2013 and I have made a Easter basket full of yummy chocolate eggs.
I have taken quite a few pictures so the first one is the card and basket.

Here is the card.

Here's How I made the card.

I have die cut a Spellbinders floral oval with Neenah cardstock and stamped Tilda with Mr Rooster onto it with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured the image with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils and surrounded the image with Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts. 
I have inked around the floral oval with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.

For the shaped card I have used 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frames frilly#2 from Cuttingedgecrafts. 
The pretty papers are Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics from Dies To Die For. 
I have inked around the edges of the papers with tea dye distress ink.
The white doily and lace are both from Ebay. You can find the pretty lace HERE.
I have placed some cheese cloth onto the centre of the card and adhered the image on top with 2mm sticky pads.
I have tied the bow with 25mm light blue organza ribbon and adhered a flower shaped flat backed pearl from The Ribbon Girl to the centre.
The dragonflies are Magnolia Doohickey. I have die cut them with Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics paper from Live & Love Crafts and inked their edges with tea dye distress ink placing white 5mm pearls along the centre of the larger dragonfly and 3mm white pearls along the centre of the smaller dragonfly.
The fence is Magnolia Doohickey lovely fence. I have inked the edges with tea dye distress ink and adhered it to the card with 2mm sticky pads.

The flower arrangement.

For the flower arrangement I have used a 25mm ivory wild rose, 20mm baby blue roses and 15mm brown roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Kort & Godt white chrysanthemums and marshmallow frosted berries from Live & Love Crafts. 
For the foliage I have die cut Cheery Lynn pine branches, inked the edges with tea dye distress ink and placed them between the flowers.
Can you see the Easter bunny charm on the flower arrangement?
The Easter bunny charm is from Live & Love Crafts. 
I have tied a bow with hemp twine through the eyelet at the top of the bunny.

A close up of adorable Tilda With Mr Rooster.

I have added Ranger white liquid pearls onto Tilda's bow in her hair and dotted her cheeks with Inkssentials opaque white pen..

Inside the card.

Inside the card is decorated with The papers and a Spellbinders floral oval.

The basket.

The tutorial for the basket can be found on Jenny's blog HERE. 
I have made the Easter basket with Woodware recycled card and inked  all  the edges with tea dye distress ink.
The materials are the same as what I have used on my card apart from the Martha Stewart woodland branches among the flowers.
I inked the branches with tea dye distress ink.
