Swirly Sisters Easter Card

I had enough time to finish one more card for this week's challenges at 
365 Cards.  This challenge was to create an Accordion or Stair step card.  I figure I was on a roll with my Swirlydoos Kit that I would make an Easter card for My Swirly Sister Savages! 
Here is my Easter Card for the Swirly Girls!   I entered it into one of longtime Peeps Challenge over at abc DT Challenge (my friend Heidi is on the DT there).  I love to play at Paper Sundaes challenge blog when I get a chance.  This week is texture.  So I have lots of trim and bling to add texture..yum!
I just love it!  I used my papers that I spoke about in my last two posts.  So please check them out if you would like to see the papers before they were cut up!
Here is a close up of the back layer.  I inked the edges of the blue egg with Tumbled Glass by Ranger.  I added some Perfect Pearls in Perfect Copper using my favorite background stamp I carved.  I added some SWIRLY BLING to my egg!  Of course a Butterfly..because Swirly girls love butterflies!  Every month, Angelica has a Butterfly Challenge.
Here is the middle layer.  I used my favorite bluebird image (blue bird of friendship...I call it) from the Graphics Fairy.  I inked the bird, and egg with vintage photo.  Added some fun fancy velvet trim (of course from my kit) and some petaloo flowers.  I was looking at my egg pieces and thought of those Faberge Eggs...and know if there was a "Faberge" of the scrapbook world...the most Exquisite pages would be made by Swirlygirls!  I also saw lots of inspiration from the DT over at Simply Create for their Egg Challenge.  Of course...all my peeps have some Swirly goodness in them.
 Here is the front layer.  I used a Dusty Attic piece...because who doesn't love Dusty Attic Chippies!
One last close up of my card.
The card simply says.." May your Easter Basket be filled with Swirly Treasure!"  In just can't get better than that!
Thanks for visiting...and letting me brag a little on my Swirly Sisters!
