Memory Box Happy Easter Egg



Hi everyone!

I just had to make a quick card for a couple of challenges today! 

I saw the colors at Global Design Project, and that got me going for a quick CAS Easter card. Yes, I know...strange colors for Easter I suppose, but I think it works!

 I started with the smokey slate, cutting out a wonky stitched rectangle from Avery Elle. Then I cut out the egg in basic grey from Memory Box. The tiny daffodil butterfly is from Stampin Up. Remember the embosslits? I have the Beautiful Wings one, and oh my..it's in poor condition. I have to use a piece of tape to hold it together..but I love it!

Since I used a snippet to emboss and cut the butterfly, it fits for both AAA cards and Pixie's challenges too.

Have a great day!

Love this Laurie! The little yellow butterfly works so well with the white and grey. It's a shame that SU discontinued the butterfly embosslit, one of theor best products IMHO :)

Lovely to see you in the Playground!

Hugs
