Happy Easter

Welcome to my little piece of blogland, hope you've had a good day.
I started off mine finding I was one of the winners over at Party Time Tuesdays, you can see my card here. Well, LOL, it was very early in the morning, about 1 a.m.
I woke up about 7.15 and groggily switched the alarm off and then must have turned the second one off without even registering it and then when I woke up next I checked the time and was horrified to see I had slept in and was supposed to be picking a friend up in only five minutes and then another friend also on the way to craft, so I had to make a phone call to say I would be late and then hurry to get dressed, take blood sugar levels, tablets and breakfast. I didn't do too badly. I was about 15 minutes late.
We had a good time at craft and made 3 fab cards with Shirley. Doug, (Shirley's hubby) popped in on his gopher to see what we were up to. It was good to see him there.
Fran, Helen and I stopped on the way home at our usual little cafe and had some lunch before I dropped them both home. I'm having a few problems with my teeth and have off and on toothache, I rang yesterday and got told my dentist was booked up for 4 weeks but because I have toothache he will see me Friday! It makes you feel lousy and tired too!! and will have to put up with it for another few days.
Anyway will get on with sharing my card and head off to bed.
I've used SU Crumbcake fpr the base and then another layer which I put through an embossing folder and popped up with foam dots. I couldn't find a DP that went with the floral image that I used, they all seem to overpower it, that's why I went with the one colour. I cut another piece out with a nestie die and adhered it to a piece of SU Rose Red and trimmed. The image is from SU clear mount set "Easter Blossoms". I inked it with Basic Brown and coloured it with a pink Copic Marker and also a brown one. I added a ribbon and lots of bling on the flowers. The sentiment is also from the same set and I edged it with a pink Marvy Marker. I also did the inside with a piece of the Rose Red, rounded the corners and then added another diecut and stamped two decorative corners in basic brown (image also from the SU set)

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Make it Monday #82 - Anything Goes
Addicted-to-stamps-challenge #26 - recipe: rhinestone, flowers and ribbon ( I've used my image for the flower component, I hope this is okay)
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - challenge 63 - Get ready for Easter
