Easter Eggs

Today the sun has come out at last! After the last four days of quite heavy rain it is wonderful to be able to enjoy some sunshine and take the dog for a longer walk :-) And of course it is also only one week to Easter so another fabulous reason to celebrate!
Unfortunately my health has not been great recently but today is a better day and so am joining in the fun at Can You Case It. Where the theme this week is "Bunnies, chicks and eggs."

Now this card didn't quite turn out how I had envisioned it  - of an egg falling down steps and cracking open but its nearly there :-)

For the card base I used some Whisper White with some Coastal Cabana card between the layers.
To make the "steps" I stamped the wonderful Hardwood onto some Sahara Sand card and cut the steps and rounded the corners. I had some left over grass from a previous project and added it here to give an outdoorsy feel along with some Gorgeous Grunge stamped in Gumball Green.

Next the egg and chick were stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and the insides with some Calypso coral and the the little chickadee was coloured with Crushed Curry ink using a Blender pen and added with dimensionals.
And finally a little bling with (just a few!) sequins :-) Yes, I still love the bling!!

Card stock: Coastal Cabana, Gumball Green, Sahara Sand, Whisper White
Inks: Baked Brown Sugar, Gumball Green, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry
