The Golden Egg Challenge...

It’s The Golden Egg CARDMAKERS CHALLENGE! Who doesn’t love a good easter egg hunt???  Combine that with a card challenge and watch the golden eggs appear! To play along, cardmakers MUST use the items on the easter egg hunt list on your card then upload it to to the Savvy Projects Blog Posting HERE!

Easter Egg Hunt List (Items that have to be on your card):

~ GLITTER ~ Whether it’s prisma glitter or glitter pens … it just has to have glitter!
~ LAYERS ~ At least 3!
~ COLOR ~ At least 3 colors or more! Ink, prismacolor pencils, copic markers, etc
~ RIBBON or SCRAPPERS FLOSS
~ FLOWERS ~ At least 1!

So here goes: 
Glitter....CHECK!
Layers....CHECK!
Color....CHECK!
Ribbon....CHECK!
Flowers...CHECK!
Now lemme' find that golden EGG!!!

I hand cut the easter egg design then added layers and layers of paper.  Frutti Fusion patterned paper was my colorful selection and it also doubled for the flowers requirement....
Then I went on to finding the perfect stamps...I found those in Sweet Goodies (One of my ALL TIME FAVORITES!) and The cuties in the set Cheery Thoughts. 

I started out by stamping the circular sentiments then decided something COLORFUL needed to go inside and hey, CHILDREN LOVE EASTER and hunting for eggs and hearts and flowers...so you get the picture right?  It was PERFECT!  I punched two circles and they fit perfectly inside the sentiment ring so I stamped the little ladies, colored them up and distressed the edges to make the circles stand out more. 

The card wasn't complete until I added some ribbon and of course some GLITTER.  I used my Copic multiliner pen to create some empty polka-dots then filled them with my favorite Diamond Stickles. 

I folded that flower as I felt it was kinda big so folding it in half and adding it to the edge of the paper just worked perfectly!

Now I'm off to hide some eggs.  I wonder if you'll find one...
