Inspired by Stamping Challenge #49

Inspired by Stamping offers an inspiration challenge every Thursday (Queensland, Australia time). The challenge lasts for one week, then a new photo is revealed! Here is the photo/color combination for this week's challenge!

Another beautiful, spring-time table! So feminine!

I decided to make a spring card with Easter eggs. These days I am not big on messing with eggs for Easter, but it was a big part of my childhood. I fondly remember searching for eggs at my Dad's VFW post! I used a pale pink ink to stamp the eggs from the NEW RELEASE Mason Jars Add On III set, which will be available for purchase on March 10th!

I used a masking technique to add some grass from the same stamp set. (I got my inspiration from another wonderful sketch from Mojo Monday - Sketch 266.)

The sentiment is also from the new Mason Jars Add On III. I stamped it with some "kraft" ink. I created a great bow with seam binding that I first sprayed with some glimmer mist.

The embossing folder is a new one that I've only had a few months. I rubbed the circles with some white ink to make them "pop" a bit. I really love how this card turned out!

Now, come and play along with the team!
Basic rules of the challenge: Please use the colors in our photo as your main colors. Upload your card/project to your blog or online gallery and leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of the IBSIC Blog post.
