Happy Mojo Monday - What a fabulous sketch. I was determined to make an Easter card, I was suppose to start them this weekend but did not get the chance. I am quite happy with the way my card turned out today.

I had a rough idea what I wanted to do with this card when I peaked a the sketch this morning. I started with Memory Box-Minuet collection. I wanted to use an egg as my focal point so I used some navy embossing powder and embossed the egg twice, once to cut it out the second to cut around with some Fiskars detail scissors.  I used some very pretty glitter floss to attach my button to ribbon, I tied it too tight and it warped the bow but I like how it turned out.

I just purchased a texture plan from Stampin' Up!-Perfect Details, it added a nice subtle pattern on the second layer. I lightly edged the layer with Atlantic Versa color and  I finished with some pearls on the egg's little flowers.

Supplies: Cream and Green cardstock, Designer Paper-Memory Box, The stamps of Life-eggs2hunt, Sheer creations ribbons, Kaisercraft-pearls, misc button, navy embossing powder and Sterling glitter floss.

Have a great week.
