This creation is for Spoon Full of Sugar Easter Challenge. I know this is late, but if you had of had the week that I've had, well that's another storey wont bore you with the details. Hopefully I can get back in to the swing now shush don't tell anyone or that will put the Khyber's on it lol.
I did see this Easter egg box decorated before somewhere that's what gave me the idea, but I can't remember where so therefore can't give you credit sorry. I have changed mine into a little bag though so it is different. Inside I should have taken a photo have put some Cadburys Cream eggs Galaxy and Aero eggs yum yum. I just hope the person I have made it likes it, Emma (my daughter) likes it, wants to know if I'm making her one.

Cute Card Thursday - Recipe

Well I had a go at the CCT Recipe but I think I went a bit wrong. I didn't realise that every layer of a flower counted as one should have read more carefully, but been in a bit of a rush today. My image has been coloured in for a few weeks she started as an oval, she's been place on every DP I own, still not happy with it but hey ho. My recipe is 1 torn paper around the image. 2 papers and finally 4 embellishments = 2 ribbons, 1 flower, 1 brad lol.

Images - Whiff of Joy Painted with water colours and H2os
Sentiment - PC Generated
DP - My Minds Eye Laundry Line (once you start using this you can't stop lol)
Tools - Nesties, sizzex and Hand's lol
Flowers - Prima
Bits - Ribbon, brad etc from stash

I did have a friend staying over last week so you know wine and late nights totally went out of my mind.

Any way enough chit chat I thought I enter it for the ABC Challenge as it does have some flowers on the card. I know its not got mega stuff on it but sometimes less is best.
