Easter Card with Matching Envelope

Happy Easter!  I made this card tonight to give to my daughter on Easter.  She is finally too old to hunt for eggs but I still want to give her a little something.

All of the shapes were cut on my Cricut using the Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to My Heart.  The layout is based on a sketch from Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #59 and the eggs make it a perfect candidate for this weeks Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday # 105, Cooking with Cricut Easter challenge, My Craft Spot Monday Challenge, and Creative Cutter Room Easter Challenge.  Rosey over at Sketches4All also has a new challenge to create a card and a matching item as does The Paper Variety so I thought I'd give both a try.  I don't typically think of decorating the envelopes so thanks for the idea, Rosey!






This is the sketch from Die Cuttin Divas I used:
