Over at LESS IS MORE (Week 5) this week there's a colour theme of "PASTELS"....i so love the look of the cards produced on this challenge blog...just clean and simple but still so very gorgeous!
This is only the second time i've joined in the fun...i so wanted to enter this challenge weekly...so little time,so much to do!
I've gone again today for a shaped card,both the base card and the top layer have been cut using the largest die from the Spellbinders "Nested Eggs"die set...not a very big card at all,just a pretty little one maybe to give with an Easter egg or an Easter gift.
The patterned egg as been stamped using the largest stamp from the "Nestie Egg" set from Waltzing Mouse,the sentiment is also from this same set.
I've stamped using a Versamark Ink pad and then brushed Mica powders in pale pink,lilac and green over the stamped area,the same with the sentiment...looks really shimmery IRL .
I've added tiny self adhesive gems in the same colours just to give alittle interest...i wish i'd have used pearls now.
Finished off with some organza ribbon from stash.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenge:-

Well that's about all for today again...the sun's shinning beautifully here,couldn't get a good photo because of it....not complaining it's nice to see that yellow ball in the sky :0).
Have a fab day
Take care all
