Beaded easter greetings

Well believe it or not its time to start thinking Easter cards. Scary thought - where does time go to.
Here's an Easter card I made a few years ago which I still like.
Materials required: Black cardstock, gold cardstock, white cardstock, cream organza ribbon, white and gold beads, Background stamp by Penny Black, Easter greetings stamp by Hero arts, Black Brilliane ink pad, Clear embossing ink pad, Gold embossing powder, pop up foam dots, stickles glitter glue, magic red liner tape
Method: Fold black cardstock in half to create base card. Use clear embossing ink pad to stamp floral pattern repeatedly over front of card and emboss using gold embossing powder. Highlight centre of flowers with a dot of stickles clear glitter glue. Cut out 3 egg shapes from white cardstock (i just cut freehand) and then put red liner tape on them and lift off the backing from the tape and pour on beads. Matt layer of white and then black and then gold cardstock and then use pop up foam dots to secure the eggs to this matt and attach to cardfront as shown. Stamp word with black ink pad and matt onto black and then gold cardstock and then to cardfront. Add ribbon.
