Memory Box Happy Easter Egg






I can't believe Easter is already next week! I need to make a few more Easter cards yet. Today I'm sharing a clean and layered card I made for the challenge at The Card Concept

Here's the inspiration photo:



I was inspired by the eggs and colors. I love the pink with the brown! 

I used the Memory Box Happy Easter Egg die and cut it out in chocolate chip. Then I cut out the flowers with Poppystamps Petal Ribbon die. It's all adhered to an Avery Elle wonky stitched rectangle that I water colored.


I added a few tiny pearls in the centers of the flowers.

If you would like to join us, head on over to The Card Concept and play along!

Wow Laurie! This is just beautiful. Brilliant background there and a perfect die for Easter for sure (as in the egg) - then topped off with those wonderful ribbon flowers too - love it!

The new challenge over at Cuttlebug Mania is Easter by the way :) You don't need to use a Cuttlebug machine, just a manual one - why not join in?
