Egg-ceptional Easter

It's getting too close to Easter to make individual cards for all my grandchildren so I'm making them by family.  Yesterday I posted a card for three of them, and today is for another two.  I have two older ones but they may not get cards this year.  Even if I get them made, the mail may not make it there.  I'll have to decide that later.  Right now it's time for the Egg/Easter challenges card.


I used Doodlecharms to cut the basket border from some woven looking paper.  The actual border was 3 baskets, but by using Design Studio I could enlarge the border so that I could cut off one basket and have the two fit on an A2 card.  I used the eggs on the border key to cut three different papers and glued them to the back of the basket.  The lavendar background paper was cut at 5 1/4 x 4.  I printed the sentiment on my computer and then aligned the Paisley Cuttlebug folder below the printing to emboss the lower portion of the card.  Adding a couple of sheer bows made the card complete.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut #105 - Egg-ceptional Easter  and
Cooking With Cricut #80 - Easter
