SNS Easter Eggs {Our Crafty Corner #7}

Waving hello to my crafting friends!

Today begins challenge #7 for Our Crafty Corner!
Challenge starts this morning and continues until the end of the month.

OCC is a month-long challenge, beginning the first Monday of each month.
Every month's theme: ANYTHING GOES

We now have two sponsors every month!
Sponsored this month by PPinky Dolls and Sparkle N Sprinkle.

My card features Sparkle N Sprinkle's Easter Eggs Digital Image
by artist Jan Mahew

Jan created her Easter Eggs individually - just as regular eggs have different shapes, so do her eggs!
To achieve uniformity for the card, the eggs were fussy cut out, and then layered onto white scallop die cuts.

Because Spring brights forth pretty colors and LOTS of green, my layers are mostly green tones.

Layering the Martha Stewart Double Arch was interesting.
There is sparkling "Starfire" glitter around all the arches, bringing a glitter happiness to the card. The glitter did not photograph very well:

Sue said...

What a lovely Easter card, Donna. Beautiful Spring colors and those eggs are all so pretty. Your layered pretty die cuts set your card up to be a stunner for sure. And that lace could not be lovelier. I have some of this type of beautiful lace from Edith's sewing stuff, must use it instead of saving it for sentimental reasons. Gorgeous card, Donna.


Leslie Miller said...

Hi, Donna! I finally made it over and look what a pretty thing I find when I get here! I have a fondness for green, probably because of the garden, and it's so lovely to see lots of it on your card. I've never tried one of those punch around the page thingys, but it sure looks perfect. Your layers, as always, are a delight and it's intriguing to see how you put your cards together. Always something I would never have thought of. I'm never quite certain what to do with those very decorative panels, like your middle layer, but you used it perfectly. Just enough showing to make the eggs even prettier!

Nancy Hill said...

Beautiful coloring of the eggs - just gorgeous card. Hugs

Tracey said...

Fabulous card Donna (I could just east a chocolate Easter egg lol) :o)

P.G. Lamb said...

I agree the egg with the cross is lovely The color is also very nice on this beautiful card Donna I like the new header so spring .............Lis

MaryH said...

Had been wondering about some of the SnS digi stamps, and this is a beautiful one. Love these colorful eggs. Even more, I love the glamorous treatment you've given them with all the beautiful dies, punches and trims. The MS border looks great here, and the sparkle does show up some. Lots of design imagination makes this just a stunning card. TFS & Hugs. (I see something with a cardinal & butterflies, so of course I have to check that out!)

I love the way you use your dies, always giving your cards such a special and elegant look. Love the trick you've used to make the different sized eggs look more similar. It's a fantastic design, really beautiful!

Jean Bullock said...

This is a darling card. i could see the sparkle on the last photo. I love the layers and the coloring on the Easter Eggs. Well done. Oh and I pinned too.

Your eggs are beautifully coloured and I like the way you have mounted them to all look the same dimension. Clever trick of the eye.
Gorgeous background too. Hugs Mrs A.
