Happy Easter Sliding Card

I made this cute Easter sliding card and I am entering it in the Cricut Cardz Challenge.It's challenge #69 create a card, LO or craft project for Easter.
They are having a cool Easter Bunny Blog Hop, you should go take a look at all their designers wonderful creations!

Anyway on to my card

To make this card, you first cut out a 5 1/2" square out of your choice of cardstock. 1/2" down from the top and 1/2" over from each side you are going to cut two 1/16" slots that are 1 1/2" long for the brad tracks. See picture:
To make the card front you will cut another piece of cardstock 5" square. Cut an egg out of your choice of patterned paper and adhere to cardstock. 2" up from bottom draw a straight line just to egg with pencil, then on egg draw some jagged lines. Cut in half along lines. See Pic:

To make each chick punch 2 circles with a 1" circle punch. Cut triangles from orange cardstock for beaks, punch eyes from black cardstock with 1/4" hole punch. Glue pieces to face.

Adhere bottom egg piece to block along side and bottom edges. Position chick faces and adhere.
Staple a loop of ribbon to top piece of egg cardstock. To attach to card, insert brads through piece and tracks; spread prongs horizontally so piece slides along tracks. Note: insert brads when egg is closed for correct positioning.

Print "Happy Easter" on cardstock; trim and mat with cardstock and adhere to front of card. Adhere buttons if you choose.

Voila, you have a darling Easter Card!

How cool! I love your plaid egg, and the blue/green base. An Easter egg is the perfect idea for a slider card. Wonderful!
