Perfectly Rustics Eggs

Its time for another challenge over at Perfectly Rustics and in the spirit of Easter the theme is Eggs. So with that in mind, I went a little bit simpler with my layout as to highlight a gorgeous and bright basket of Easter eggs.

Card Tip:

 I have used a die to emboss instead of die cutting. To do this you will still need a die cutting machine but instead of a second cutting plate in your sandwich, you use an embossing mat and possibly cardboard shims.

Card Ingredients:

Card Stock: DCWR textured white card stock for 4.25" x 5.5" top folding card base, Quill black card stock. 
Stamps: Simon Says Stamps absolutely stamp set, Elizabeth O Dulemba colouring pages.
Ink: Memento tuxedo black ink.
               Basket: E55+E33 + colourless blender + Y21 
               Bow: R22+R24+R27+R29
               Eggs: BG02+BG05, YGO3+YGO6, RV19+RV04,                                     B21+B24, YR02+YR04.
Dies: Simon Says Stamps stitched rectangles.
