Pretty Easter Egg

I feel like I cheated a bit on this card.  When I Googled Easter eggs and this image came up sp beautifully colored I could not resist, so I printed it on photo paper.
I followed the sketch this week at Stamp TV, if you have never play along at Gina Ks be sure you check it out as you can win a set of her stamps and they are wonderful stamps.
Unfortunately on this one I did not have any of her Easter stamps to use.
I printed the egg twice and then just cut out the ribbon part and pop dotted it on top to do some paper piecing.  It is hard to tell in the picture but the corner in the upper left is a separate corner piece cut out.  The corner and the border along the bottom is cut from Straight From the Nest, this cartridge has some awesome cuts, and a corner & a border feature.  I used my Nesties for the oval & scalloped oval behind the egg.
Thanks for stopping by and a Happy Easter to you and your family.
