Re-constructed Easter card

Have you guys seen the Hallmark line of cards that are made to look like they were made by hand?  Obviously, they're not the stuff that all of us create... you can still see that they're partly mass produced with factory machines.  But last year my MIL sent us one of those cards for Easter.  I thought the pop-dotted eggs were cute, so I saved the card to re-constuct one this year... AND THEN I SENT IT BACK TO HER! Lol!!!

I just cut out the panel with the eggs.  The Happy Easter "stamp" was already printed on there.  I added a white card base, some SU Rich Razzleberry card stock and paper, and a Crushed Curry polka dotted ribbon.  The colors matched the eggs perfectly. :)  Wish I took a picture of the "before" card.
