 Design Team Member ~  Tonya Gibbs created an
AMAZING sketch for us to work with!

This month's Dare is to use an EGG

I decided to create a mixed media Easter Card for my example of the challenge.

I used the Delicate Egg Die that was just released in March for my focal point.
Delicate Egg
I wanted the egg to have a little more substance so I placed it on a piece of green paper, and trimmed out around the shape of the egg. This gave my egg more presence and dominance on the card. 

I used gold paint on the die cut, then went over the entire piece with a
Wink of Stella Pen to give it lots of sparkle.   

I can't wait to see what you create with this sketch challenge and dare.
