Hi, everyone, Tonya here - welcome to my house! 
Today I wanted to share with you a card that I created as an invitation to my annual egg coloring party. I wanted my card to have the feel of colored Easter eggs, but with an elegant twist.
I used the Delicate Egg Die for my card, and then made it appear as though it were free floating in the middle of the card.
Wait - are you asking "How did she do that?"   Here is a complete step by step video of me making this card.  

I love how the Gelatos from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft create a soft watercolor look just like the egg coloring kits.
Thanks for hopping with us today make sure you left a comment to be eligible for these fantastic prizes.   
Now, head on over to Lynne Forsythe’s blog to continue the hop. Thank you for joining our blog hop!
