Egg shaped card

I love Easter eggs, there’s something about the snap of that shell that you just can’t beat. These days, Easter eggs don’t seem to be as expensive as they once were but I don’t think they live up those that I remember from my childhood. In those days there were surprises and treats inside the egg instead of them being packaged up on the outside sandwiched inside blown plastic. I remember once having an egg that formed the body of a cardboard swan and others that were intricately piped with iced flowers and leaves. The card I am sharing today is a nod towards those sugary confections:

I am sharing this over at City Crafter Challenge Blog for their Easter challenge and also at Really Reasonable Ribbon where the theme is flowers or button with bows.

I used an egg shaped die to cut out the base card the topped it with a piece of embossed yellow card. Across the centre is some gorgeous shimmer satin ribbon and white crochet lace, both of which were from my Really Reasonable Ribbon Club assortments.

I’ve added a bow at one side and then arranged some spring blooms – sweetheart blossoms and daffodils- and leaves.

All around the outside I’ve added some “sugary” dots of rose pink glitter.

The finishing touch is a little paper bee from Anna Griffin. I original planned to use a little bunny but the little bee was to hand so I popped him on just to see what he looked like. Somehow, he finished the card off perfectly and looked so at home I left him where he was!
