Fusion Nest of Eggs

Happy Saturday, peeps!  And happy SPRING, if you're in the Northern hemisphere!!  I am so glad to know that we might be able to sweep away that chilly weather soon!  And speaking of spring, I have a sweet little springy Easter card for you today; it uses both the sketch AND photo prompt from Fusion:

My friend Martha gave me some Easter egg dies a long time ago and I think this is the first I've used them:

I couldn't find any gingham DSP in my stash that suited me, so I printed some out on my computer!  The sentiment is from W+9, stamped in Memento Black and diecut with a die from Tasteful Labels dies.  I wanted to add a black border around it, but there is only one die in the set with that shape, so I cut two and adhered them together to create a mat:

My "nest" of eggs features eggs cut from Rococo Rose, Naturals White, Soft Seafoam, Soft Sky and Crumb Cake; I sponged them and speckled them with Crumb Cake and Memento Black ink.  I "gathered" them together with a bit of Braided Linen Trim!  This is actually a remake of this card:

I decided I didn't like the pink striped background, so I disassembled it and used the gingham paper instead!  I am also entering this in the Inspire.Create Anything Goes challenge, and the Sugar Pea Mix It Up challenge:

Thanks for visiting today---be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Just love it on the gingham, LeAnne... surprised? Those eggs are fantastic - it's high time you got them out to play! The finishing touch is one I always love - your fabulous linen trim... sigh.

Love this - those eggs are so realistic and so perfect for the Fusion sketch and theme too! I prefer the blue gingham but the pink is cute too!
