This took me awhile to do......I did alot of cut work, I made the "blue egg" in lower right corner, I made some of the flowers, stamped the leaves cut and distressed them, I also did some 3-D on the fairy, I cut another and laid over original for the 3-D look! For the egg.......... I used a "chocolate" egg, covered it with paper, then put "paper mache" glue over it,  then I took the chocolate egg out the backside, then reshaped the egg.... it's far from perfect, but it's a "distressed" egg, which goes with the papers!! I colored Tilda and her rabbit with distress inks. I also added lots of butterflies! For several challenges...TOMIC (photo & an egg), Dream Valley (Easter), Pink Elephant ( butterflies), Paper Sundaes (Easter), Paper Play (Easter), Stampin' For The Weekend (anything goes),
 Magnolia Down Under (easter), Just Magnolia (spring), Magnolia Card Challenge (Easter), Tip Top challenge (Easter), Craft Your Days Away (Easter), 7 Kids College challenge (shades of spring).  Thanks so much for stoppin' by and takin'a peek!
