One Good Egg!!

Hi, hope you are all having a lovely weekend! The sun has been shining again here in Manchester, UK and it has been a gorgeous day. Lots of lovely blossoms and flowers coming out now and I am really looking forward to Easter. So here's my first Easter Card. The stamp is called "One Good Egg!!" by Penny Black. 

The backing paper was a freebie with magazine. I've mounted the image on layered up nestabilities. I printed out Happy Easter Sentiment and mounted it on a small Nellie Snellen die and added a small scrap of ribbon that I had over in my stash and it just fitted! The roses and buds are from the wonderful Wild Orchid Crafts. The 'Surprise' topper is from a Forever Friends Elements pack. It is actually glittery and gorgeous but I don't think I have photographed this card very well! But I am determined to post this card tonight as I have spent so long on it, changing things around!! The ribbon, bows and gems are from stash. 

One Good Egg!!

I do love this image - the bunny looks SO proud of his egg, bless him! The bunny is coloured with Promarkers, Cool Grey 3 & 4 and Blossom. The egg is Pastel Blue, Blossom and Rose Pink. I wanted to make his egg really special and so went mad with the Bling! Added tiny 2mm gems to centre of flowers and some Twinklets Diamond Dust onto the centre strip. It's the first time I've used Diamond Dust and I love it !!!!  It's like tiny crystals. Oh and I added Flock to the Bunny's Tail to make him handsome and cute! Don't know why I'm presuming it's a him!! - he just looks like a him!

Beautiful Sue, what a gorgeous colour combo you have used and your image is darling, I think it looks like a 'him' too. Lovin the Diamond Dust, I bought some and never used it I'm gonna have to dig it out now lol and what a great idea to give him a real fluffy tail! I would never have thought of that!
