One Egg in the Basket

     You've all heard the old adage about not putting all your eggs in one basket but this card shows what happens when there's only room for one egg in your basket!  :-D  The image is for the March Progressive Challenge image at Scrapper's Delights, another of the progressives I play regularly.


     This time I colored it in pastel shades with my Copics and then cut it with a die from Spellbinders.   I used a larger die from that same set to cut the bright pink mat.  The sparkly ribbon was the last bit in my stash.  The pink satin ribbon for the bow was recycled from an old child's dress.

     Everything was layered together and adhered to a deep purple rectangle, then added to a pre-made card blank.

     Challenges:
Colour Crazy Craft
Dream Valley
Fussy and Fancy
Moving Along with the Times
Outlawz Festive Friday
Outlawz Greetings
Pammie's Inky Pinkies
Take It, Make It

     I'm getting close to being finished with my Easter cards for the grandkids but still have to make a few for friends to use.  Fortunately, I still have plenty of time.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Oh so cute! I love the happy, Eastery colors and the pretty shape surrounding it. Wouldn't it make a pretty tag as well as a lovely card? Thanks for my morning inspiration, Connie! xo

So very pretty! Love the framework and that pretty bow. If that egg is chocolate on the inside, I'd only need one! Love your card.
