Easter Egg

Where does the time go?
Easter is just around the corner
and Double D Challenges is celebrating it!

Team Darlene is hosting this time
and the theme is Easter using the tile board below.



There was lots to choose from on this board and I went with
the "Easter Egg'.


I cut the egg on my Cricut Explore using a cut file from
I didn't make my card a shaker , but just used the intricate overlay...
so PRETTY!!!


I used an embossing folder underneath the overlay,
popped the flower overlay up over the top of it.
I used my Cuttlebug to emboss, and can you believe I broke my 'C' plate...a stupid thing on my part!

I added a bit of Pan Pastels on the flowers 
(I know hard to see in the pictures)
and added a pearl center to each flower
along with a pretty bow topped with flowers from the same cut file.

I am amazed how that Explore can cut just about anything...
it is way smarter then me!!

Now, pop on over to the Double D Challenge site
and see all the pretty variety of creations the DT has....
WOW...beautiful projects to inspire you...
and there is a super neat prize to be won...I want it myself!!

That egg is so gorgeous, and I noticed the subtle shading right away. The beautiful double flower and ribbon look perfect on it, too. And the pearls perfectly matched. Wow! Amazing!
