Egg-stra thankful

For the current SPARKS challenge...

and the inspiration...

and the card...

Totally inspired by the Easter/spring theme and the bright colors - this is my first Easter card ever, because I would only give out cards featuring the real reason for the season (Christ's Resurrection), and I don't usually like making cards I wouldn't give to someone. However, the idea for the card popped into my head as soon as I saw the challenge, so I couldn't resist. Though this card will probably end up gathering dust here in my room (or more likely in the donation box), it was fun to make!

The PS stamps are the basket (digi image enlarged big time) and the sentiment...so pretty much the entire card. :) This card is also for the Moxie Fab World Household Items challenge - I used that plastic Easter grass that we always recycle every year - we probably have some ten year old fake grass still in use. ;)

I'll be back later tonight with some HA cards and the last two blog giveaway winners. :)

Cardstock: LSS
Patterned paper: GCD Studos 'Splendor'
Stamps: Paper Smooches digi's
Other: button (Making Memories), ribbon (PTI)

Tools: trimmer, adhesive, scissors, printer
