Printed Paper Easter Eggs

The Emphasize the Negative Challenge
Moxie Fab World Challenge
This card isn't going very far, so I still have time to mail it.  I'm not very good at using my printed papers--maybe that's why I have so many stacks of it!  I got several of the coordinating sheets of Flower Patch by MM a couple years ago & I had used a little.  Decided it's time to use it again--love these soft prints.  I started by die-cutting the eggs with my Memory Box dies & purposely placed the die so I would have panels with the negative die cut that I could use.  The filigree layer is cut from the pink dotted paper & is sprayed with Therm-O-Web Glimmer Mist--can't tell in the picture.  The twine is Martha Stewart & the sentiment is Inkadinkado.  I'm entering the Moxie Fab World Emphasize the Negative challenge.  Thanks for stopping by.  I so appreciate your support.

  9. HI Greta - How wonderful to "hear" your friendly "voice" this morning, especially since we're far, far from home! Your card here is STUNNING; you certainly seem to have a great handle on how to use your patterned papers! Last week, I signed up for an online card-making class (first time, and of course, I was 'late') on how to use patterned papers. Because the videos and all other course ideas/materials are archived, you can access them anytime. Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner are the lead teachers; in a word, they're awesome! Here's the link, just in case: http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/
    Happy Easter to you!!
