Easter Greetings

I was immediately drawn to the Viva la Verve February Week 3 Sketch & started my card days ago.  While the glue attaching the Memory Box eggs in the Impression Obsession grass was drying I went on to other projects. Today I realized time is almost up, so sat down to finish my first Easter card this year.  The solid eggs are clear embossed using a Magenta stamp & Wink of Stella is brushed on the decorative ones.  This Spellbinder die always makes me think of a basket.  I sprayed the white cardstock with Heidi Swapp white Color Shine which gives a gorgeous shimmer.  The vellum flag is cut with MFT Fishtail Flags & the sentiment (from a local company no longer in business) is clear embossed using Memento Gray Flannel.  Not sure I've ever used this Cuttlebug embossing folder--hope it isn't too busy.  I used the end of a DeNami vine stamp with PTI New Leaf ink for the sides of the card front.  
Fortunately, I had the right shade of Michael's green ribbon. I'm also entering these challenges: Pixies Snippets Playground, SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday. Hope you have a great weekend & thank you so much for taking time to visit my blog.
