A sunny good morning to you!
I'm sharing my creation as design team for The Ribbon Reel's fortnight's challenge hosted by my teamie, Fran who has chosen the absolutely gorgeous photo for your inspiration...isn't it beautiful??
...and she asks that you create a card / project using the colours in the photo with a Spring or Easter theme! It's your chance to win some beautiful ribbons and other goodies from The Ribbon Reel shop - just for entering!!
I was drawn to the beauty of those sweet blue eggs and decided to use The Ribbon Reel's trims to decorate my stamped eggs.
I used blue ric-rac on the first egg, some natural button twine on the second and some pale blue loopy trim with tiny blue pearls on the third. The are sitting on some white silky crush ribbon that I gathered using a needle and thread and some more of the sweet pale blue gingham. My background is very subtle - some cream and white patterned paper from Pink Paislee's Nantucket collection and some light blue mini ric-rac trim from The Ribbon Reel at the top and along the bottom.
The large Faberge style egg is a stamped image from Waltzingmouse's 'Nestie Eggs'. I used some versamark ink and then heat embossed the image using pearlescent embossing powder, I edged the outside of the egg using The Ribbon Reel's gorgeous blue loopy trim and then added May Arts white silky crush, sky blue gingham and white Organza spot ribbon at the top. A loopy trim bow and button finished with blue gem finishes the top of this faberge egg.
I couldn't help adding a flower - this one is a stunning gardenia blossom to which I've added just a hint of blue ink to a few of the petals.
The little white chipboard heart is stamped with colorbox brown chalk ink. The 'Easter' sentiment is from the same Nestie Eggs set and the other little image is from WMS's 'French Country'.
Don't forget to visit my lovely Ribbon Reel team-mates and leave them some love too! All the info you need to join us for the Spring/Easter themed challenge is right HERE.

I'm back tomorrow with my DT card for the weekly Tuesday Throwdown challenge.
