>>> 365 Cards: Day 34 <<<

Today's challenge is entitled 'That's Eggs-ellent'. Basically, the challenge calls for either an EGG or an OVAL as the dominating shape, in honour of Easter. The card doesn't have to be an Easter theme.

Here's my take on it. I went for an Easter theme as I need to give one to MIL. She's one heck of a MIL... fab lady! Bought her a mazipan Easter egg, on the behalf of the boys. She luvs mazipan.

Stamp images from Unity (happy, snail & egg) and CherryArte (label). Background paper from Fancy Pants (scraps more like it!) and grass cut from Crate Paper Brunch collection. I got a 12x12 baggie of scrap papers which I dig into frequently to do cards these days. Trimming came from Scarlet Lime March 09 kit. Stamped images coloured using Promarkers. Was experimenting how to shade the images.

Have to apologise for the poor photography here as I tend to do the cards at nite, hence can only take them under fluorescent light! I do try and photoshop it though to make it look better! The theme of my card is based on the Easter Egg hunt that I'll be organising for my boys & their classmates next week. Hence the egg hidden among the grass! TTFN!
