Chase's Easter Card

I really struggled with this card... and this is the end product which I'm very pleased with!  Except, when I picked it up to photograph, I discovered I put it on the card backwards and the card opens on the left instead of the right...UGGGGHHHHHHH!!!  I made it to give to my daughters boyfriend for Easter and she said "keep it that way, he will love it"!  So I am!   I got this as a freebie several years ago and wasn't sure where only to see it on Beccy's Place for her March challenge (the eggs are different, but I'm sure it is one of her designs).  I colored him with copics, silver wink of stella on his belt buckle, and clear wink of stella on all the eggs.  Layout is for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 #108 Challenge.  CS is Craft Smith blues 12x12 pad (Michael's had them on sale last week for $5!!) and DP from Doodlebug Designs Bunnyville 6x6 pad.  Ribbon from Offray colored to match, Stampin' Up! dot candy, and computer generated sentiment.
