Crafty Calendar April Challenge

Good morning everyone. It's the first Saturday of the month and so that means it is time for a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar Challenges. This month our challenge is 'Egg-stra Special' with the option of 'More than one fold'

For my card I used this delightful little Mo Manning 'Chickies' image and combined it with some more of those Shery K Design papers I used on my last project. The is my first card in this design (not that I know what they call them) and I really enjoyed making it but oh boy not photographing it which is why you got two for the price of one lol. This card will go to my godson along with his egg.

Card Stock - Cord'nations
Designer Papers - Shery K Designs 'Egg Hunt'
