Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! I hope you're enjoying a lovely Easter Day and I have my one and only Easter project to show today using the sweet Tilda with newly Hatched chicken from the Hoppy Easter Collection 2010. Tilda is coloured with pencils on kraft card and I've used the pretty Mini Magnolia butterfly paper in the background. There are die cut layers and a die cut frame and the Magnolia Easter sentiment is recessed. Theres lots of punched flowers, butterflies (it took a while :D) and paper daffodils, pearls and sparkle too.

To make my egg and egg cup I used a styrofoam egg and covered it in the flowers, made centres with a pearl pen and a little stand for it to sit in from a strip of paper made into a circle. Does it still look like an egg? I think it's lost it's overall shape because I made the little stand to place it in. I used a blossom from my miniature lilac bush in the background, it's so pretty, smells wonderful and is very early to flower this year. 

I'm entering my project into PaperPlay Challenges with a theme of Easter time, Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenge of 'flowers' and Paper Sundeas Sunday Toppings where the toppings are sparkle, pearls, die cuts and yellow.

Enjoy the day and how much chocolate have you eater? :D
