Happy Thursday all! And Happy Easter a few days early!! Time for another ColorLab challenge!

Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Certainly Celery and a Touch of Baja Breeze

A perfect color combination for this week!! When I first looked at these colors, my thought was "Easter Eggs". and then I remembered this fun little egg in the Easter Blossoms set. PERFECT for emboss resist!! Here is my card.


Card base is So Saffron. The eggs were stamped with Versamark on Whisper White and embossed with Clear Powder. I then sponged color over them. Remember to grab a tissue and rub off any color from the embossing. Behind the Whisper White layer I attached some Pink Pirouette strips punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch. While my corners are not perfect, I love the effect of the small scallop edge. The Certainly Celery Satin ribbon was knotted around the center (before the punched ribbon strips). The Happy Easter was embossed with Clear powder the same as the eggs. I sponged So Saffron over it, punched it with the Wide Oval, and layered it onto a Pink Pirouette Decorative Label. The whole elements is attached over the ribbon with dimensionals. 

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you'll stop over by the ColorLab and play along with us this week!!

What a wonderful idea to use these eggs and sponge around. It manages to be soft and subtle, yet very colorful!
