Sparkling Egg

WOW, Loved everyone of the comments on my Poor Man's Nestie Storage. Thank you for sharing how you store yours. Some really great ideas. If you are looking for ideas to store your nesties, check out the comment under the post!!!

I made this card using the digital image Ornate Egg from Stitchy Bear. I am not sure if you can see from this picture, but I used my Sakura Glitter Pens to color it. It really shimmers nicely in real life. It is the first time I thought to color with them. I have always just used them to embellish an already colored image. I am happy with how it came out, so hope to use them this way again.

I used all shimmer paper from Paper Temptress for this card, so the paper would match the shimmer of the egg. I really need to place another order with her. I tend use this pretty paper the most and run out so fast. I usually put it off because I don't know what colors I will use next, lol. Then I just want them all!

For the corners I used the same nestie corner die, then cut them apart to fit where I wanted to place them. I hope it does not look like to much. I think I could have made this card smaller, but am so used to the 5 1/2 square cards that any smaller is not fun to embellish, lol. After all, embellishing is the funnest part :o) I added lots of Stampin' Up gems to this one. On the inside too.

Though it is not my norm, I stamped the inside with a "Happy Easter" sentiment so it would match some of the challenges going on right now. I don't usually win, but they are fun to enter anyway.
