Easter egg! It's not chocolate, sorry . . .

(looking for some Easter candy?--you can find it HERE!)

This was such a delight to make, I hope you enjoy it . . .





So, what do you think? The egg is sparkly, but of course it
didn't photograph. Is the big pink rose too, well, big? This
feels maybe a little unbalanced . . .

Had to really trim down the nest from the Vintage Illustrated Birds set, and added feathers to the bird's tail. The inside and out background paper and the face are from the Years Ago set, the bee and medallions are from the Nature Medallions--I was going for a sealing wax look? All are from Blockheads.

Thank you to the wonderful Wendy for the eggy idea!

Have a wonderful Easter, everyone!

Here's details about playing along with an embossing piece of
your own:
