It's Nearly Easter

Well, just over a month to go. Nana Vic was giving this image as a freebie over at CDAC for her embellishment challenge. Easter is not one of the festivals that many celebrate here in Scotland, but I have a few friends that would appreciate something like this.
It's a gatefold card. The BP is papermania's lemon sorbet, lightly ink distressed with "tattered rose".
I loosely followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
The image is decoupaged and coloured with promarkers with the surrounding panel dry embossed and ink distressed with tattered rose and just a touch of barn door DIs.

The flowers used are lilies and roses from Crafty Feelings with some yellow satin ribbon as well as some cream cotton.
I added a "thorny" copper peeloff all round to represent the crown of thorns as in the image.
A few little buttons to finish. Hopefully, it can be seen that both inside and out were treated to some decoration here.

I am entering this Easter card into a couple of challenges.
