Egg-cited About Sandi's Challenge


I made this egg for Design Team Bella Sandi McLean's challenge in the Impressionists group at Bella Creations. This group works on collage type items, and this month we're to decorate an egg shape.  I found some paper doilies in the shape of eggs at the local dollar store.  I backed one with glittery card stock.  The center of the doily had a solid rectangle so I covered that with a scrap of pp I found from a previous project.  The bunny is a diecut from a card making kit.  Then I had fun rummaging around my craft table, adding bits and bobs (as Sandi says).

I'd also like to give you a link to Sandi's personal blog, Maximum Embellishment.  Sandi does amazing work and generously posts freebies from her personal ephemera collection.  Do pay her a visit!

Love how you put this all together, the flowers are gorgeous, the pieces of trim cut up for flower centers are very clever. Thanks for the link, I will pop over there next.
