For my card today, I used a new Power Poppy Digital image called Vintage Easter Egg.  I went quite literal, and colored the image with a vintage color palette in mind using muted colors.  I also ink distressed around the circle, using Antique Linen (Ranger Distress Ink) to age it up a bit.
 
A few diecuts were used too.  The background panel was cut using Avery Elle's Double Pierced Rectangle Die.  The Stitched circle is from Couture Cuts, and the Scalloped Die is from Spellbinders.  I added some seam binding ribbon and some sweet sequins by Pretty Pink Posh too, as well as a felt heart that I diecut using Primitive Hearts by Sizzix.  The decorative paper is from Pion Design. 
Copics:   Egg ~ E43, E42, E41, E40 Bow ~ V99, V95, V93, V91 Flower and Frame ~ RV99, RV95, RV93, RV91 Leaves ~ G29, G46, G24, G43, G40 Small Flowers ~ YR27, YR24, Y19 Background ~ W5, W3, W1, W0
