Elegant Easter Card

Hi folks! It's a good job that the Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge is fortnightly... as I've only just finished my card ;o) The challenge is not to use any Patterned Paper and, of course, to use your Digi Stamps. I hope you are able to join in with the challenge. If you need any inspiration, my fellow DT have come up with some fabulous ideas.
For my card I used one of the images from my Easter Collection. I printed it onto 'Meltdust' Vellum, sprinkled silver pearl Meltdust on top and heat embossed it. I coloured the egg from behind with Copic Markers and painted the stand and bow with cream pearlidoodles on the front. I ran the Vellum through my Xyron 510 and adhered to white cardstock which I trimmed to the size of the vellum. I added glitter to the edges of the panel and some self adhesive pearls to the corners. A little more matting and layering and the panel was ready to adhere to the card. I cut the large blue panel of textured card to size and used my trusty swirl stamps to stamp and emboss the silver design. The sentiment is from a stamp set by Paula Pascual. I finished off the card with a small silver ribbon bow adhered to the stand.
Ciao for now!
