Adding a Little Dazzle to Easter

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!

Regardless of the weather where you are at, we have some wonderful spring inspiration for you this month at Add a Little Dazzle.  This week we have a color challenge for you.

Fab colors, right???!!
 Here is your Color Challenge Photo~

 I loved these eggs so much that I decided to recreate them.  I used Princess Pink and Pucker Me Pink Craft Metal for my eggs, along with my brand new egg dies from PTI.  Now, these egg dies are very intricately cut, but since I just wanted plain eggs, I made a shim the size of the die and cut the center of the egg shim out.  This way, when I ran my die and metal through the Big Shot only the outer egg shape cut through the metal.
I used some Stampendous gold embossing powder on half of each egg; while the ep was still hot, I sprinkled gold glitter onto it, and hit it with the heat gun again to make sure the glitter was encrusted in the ep. 
The grass dies are from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and were perfect for 'hiding' my eggs!  I added the little leafy vines around the eggs as well.  This stamp is from Altenew's Hennah Elements Stamp set.
My background panel was embossed with a SU embossing folder and the tag was stamped with a Our Daily Bread Designs sentiment and die cut out with a die from Heartfelt Creations.  I finished it off with some gorgeous ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
I am linking up to The Paper Players, challenge 'Spring'~
