Happy Easter

This card is for Sharon Johnson's challenge for today--Stamp Simply #81 - The Incredible Edible Egg! The challenge is to use an egg in your project. Any kind of egg. Fun challenge and it made me get out this set that I'd never used--never even mounted, even! Thanks for another great challenge, Sharon!!

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink, and DSP from SU!'s Tea Time collection. I rounded two corners and added a So Saffron grosgrain ribbon and bow from the SU! Sale-a-Bration ribbon bundle. The layout is SCS Sketch Challenge #222. My focal image uses a stamp from a SU! set called A Good Egg and was stamped on Gina K Pure Luxury 80 lb paper with Memento London Fog ink. The chick was colored with Copic markers Y21 and Y32 and the egg was paper pieced with more DSP. I also covered the chick with Gold Shimmer Shimmerz Blingz and outlined him and the egg with Sakura glitter pens. It--and the Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery mats--were then cut/embossed with my Nestabilities Labels dies and is mounted on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped on Whisper White with Memento London Fog ink and cut/embossed with a Spellbinders label die. I then notched the end and attached a pink button from my stash with pink DMC embroidery floss and popped it up on foam squares, too. Three light green Dew Drops in the right lower corner and it's done!

Thanks for dropping by!
