Eggs for Eggette!!

Is it Monday already? My did the weekend flow by!! Well, that means it's time once again for a CCEE challenge that I do with a super group of friends.

This week, Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) chose Eggette as our Creative Name Featured Stamper on SCS. The requirements? Of course...there are always requirements...the card had to have an egg on it, green, and ribbon.

To see what the other girls have come up with, click HERE. We'd also love to have you play along! Follow the instructions on the CCEE blog so we can see where your creative mind took you!!

Now, my CS really has a deep green tone to it, and I used Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink), which also has a green tone, but it's hard to see in the photo. But the ribbon...definitely looks green. Albeit not bright. You know I don't work well with brights.. *grin*.

I stamped this Inkadinkado image with Frayed Burlap onto Neenah Natural white cs, and matted it with Birchtone Medium (Prismatics). I then added some Frosted Lace Stickles. For embellishments: organdy ribbon (heated slightly with heat tool to crinkle it a bit), Word Window punch (SU) and brads for the tabs, Corner treatment with two Martha Stewart flower punches and brad, Dew Drops, and finally sewing, a corner rounder punch, dimensional tape, and some ink distressing with more of the Frayed Burlap.

I love doing the CNFS!! It's one of my favorite challenges, because now I get to mail this to her!! Woo-Hoo!! I hope she enjoys this card as much as I did creating it.

Thanks so very much for stopping by!!! Have a FABULOUS week and don't get too harried getting ready for Thanksgiving! *grin*

Beautiful, love that stamp and all the layering!

So glad you don't do "brights", as this is just beautiful. Frayed Burlap, huh? I think I need to explore this color a bit more. Still not trying the sewing thing no matter how much I love the look (blood is not a proper embellishment), but you've opened my eyes to some other possibilities. Thanks, Tosh!
