Card from a sketch

Still working to finish up my Easter cards & decided to use CAS(e) this Sketch for the layout of this card.  The Impression Obsession egg is gold embossed & then sponged with VersaMagic Turquoise Gem, Pink Grapefruit & Purple Hydrangea.  I used the negative die cut left from a previous card, dry embossed it & sponged on Tsukineko Encore! Ultimate Metallic Gold & attached it with foam tape over the egg panel.  The sentiment from Inkadinkado is stamped with Versafine Smokey Gray, die cut with MFT Fishtail Flags (cut to get the notch on both ends of the banner), edged with the gold ink & then mounted with the center curved up.  The edges of the card front are also inked in gold.  Thanks for taking time to stop by.  I love reading your comments.

  8. Greta, what a beautiful card! Your filigree egg, with its delicate, ornate weaving, the lovely colour blocks and the embossed frame - eye-catching, stunning combination. So creative! Thank you for leaving a comment on my Twinkle card - and yes, being an Aunt is one of the best roles. EVER!! Thank you, too, for giving Keesha a pat for me; she's adorable! Have a wonderful evening!
