I'm back with my last entry for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Easter/Spring Extravaganza with fab prizes sponsored by the Magnolia-licious Store.

It's for category #3 - Any Easter/Spring project that's not a card.

This little cage is from a charity shop, I think it is for hanging a candle in, but I managed to find an egg at M&S to put inside. I've converted one of my favorite Tilda stamps into an Easter image by replacing her strawberries with eggs. To continue with a kind of Spring farm feel I've added a Magnolia milk churn too. All coloured with Copics.

On one side I have found a little Prima dog to be her friend.

On the other side I have used paper from Websters Pages to add a wishing well. There's lots of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and I've used the balloon stamp free from this month's Craft Stamper magazine to decorate the very top.

There's also a few butterflies, punched from the Websters paper and decorated with pearls.
