Easter Eggs


I hope my card uploads at the correct time. I have posted ahead. Most times it posts when it should but you never know. I am hurriedly typing my post so I hope it will be correct.

My card is for the Crazy4Challenges, C4C231 challenge-Easter. We are supposed to make a card or projects with eggs. It can be simple, elaborate, fun, funky, or elegant. You can see my eggs in the grass under the tulips.

I thought I would do a pop-up card today. It is made with the Sizzix Bigz Die, Scallop Circle 3D pop-up.

Perfect and gorgeous Easter card inside and out! Adore the pastel colors you used.

nwilliams6 said...

Wow Brenda, this card is gorgeous inside and out. The inside would be a wonderful surprise and is prettier than the front (which is very pretty itself). My cards are always plain inside and I say I am going to change that but I NEVER do. Beautiful work. Hugz!

Whoo is this fabulous, love love every little detail on outside AND inside!! BEAUtiful :)

MaryH said...

WOW! I am loving this fold card. The front is so pretty, but then when I saw the inside, the WOW factor really kicked in. Love the eggs hidden in the grass, the dimensional tulips, and those beautiful butterflies. SO much dimension. Don't think I've ever seen this flourish quite so well as you've done on this gorgeous card. TFS & Hugs

Lynne in NI said...
