Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #208 - Bunnies, Chicks or Eggs

Hello dear visitors and welcome to my blog.  So nice to have you drop by.

The new Challenge has gone live at Crafty Cardmakers and, as Easter is so close, it's all about Bunnies, Chicks or Eggs.  Our host is the lovely Kim and, as always, you may create anything you like for this Challenge as long as it meets the Bunnies, Chicks or Eggs Theme.

I decided to use Eggs on my card.  Mainly because I had no images of Bunnies or Chicks and couldn't find anything I really liked on the net.

Doing a bit of stash busting here.  I have had these papers for ages (years actually) and thought it was time to use some of them.  They are from a Collection called Pink Gelato, a really old one from Kaisercraft but very pretty.
I've had this flower in my stash for a long time too .. didn't actually realise I had any left.   It is a Burgundy/Cream Open Paper Rose and they are available from Megs Garden.  I love the colour!!
The rose bud is also from Megs Garden and the little white bloom is from my stash.  The leaves are a die from Cheery Lynn.
I made the eggs by cutting the shape out of chipboard and then covering it with more of the papers.  Added a few gold border stickers for decoration and sprinkled them with a little gold glitter.
I also sprinkled some clear glitter on the flowers and leaves but, unfortunately, it doesn't show very well on the photos.
Popped a bit of gauze and some sissal underneath the cluster.
The sentiment was computer generated and then mounted on a piece of chipboard.

Hope you will pop over and take a look at the fabulous creations by my Teamies and perhaps you'll be inspired to join in.

Looking forward to seeing what you create!!!

Hopefully it won't be so long between posts this time.  Just after my last post, I fell over in our back yard and ended up with a broken wrist.  Not badly broken thank goodness .. the bone didn't shift  (must say, it did hurt a lot though).   I didn't need a cast, but I do have to wear a brace for 4 weeks or so and I do have to be careful what I do.  It does still ache at times but is feeling a lot better now so, I should be able to get a bit more crafting done.  Yayy!!

    I've purchased some really pretty paper pads from Michael's over the years, but on my last few trips there, I have noticed that one by one they have gotten rid of all the other brands except Recollections. No offence, but it doesn't leave much of a selection with regards to style! Just wondering if your Michael's store has been doing the same thing?
