Easter Egg-tastic

Good Morning all!
I hope you're looking forward to a relaxing crafty Sunday!
I have to go out later but I plan on getting a bit inky beforehand!
It's once again time for a fab new challenge at 
This week for Challenge #164
The theme is It's Egg-tastic
Let's see your Easter themed cards, they must include eggs, chickens,
 ducks or anything that makes, creates or comes from an egg!
Here's my little card!

I've used the New Release Image,
Easter Chicks In Brolly available in the shop from today!
It's just sooo very cute don't you think!

I used a scalloped square card blank.
The Design Papers are from Southfield Stationers!
I was given a bundle to lay with last year & still had these little babies left!
They're so good, I could hardly bring myself to use them!
The layout was my own & the sentiment was done on the computer using
Cutie Pop font, you can find it free here
I added some little buttons & a double ribbon bow!

The image has been coloured up with Promarkers.
I used all the bright cheery colours of spring!

I like to decorate the inside of my cards as I find it helps with the balance!
Don't forget it's Team A's turn to impress you this week!
