365 Cards: Eggs-cellent!

I love love love todays challenge! I don't really know why, but I am excited about eggs. I think they are schwelll! (that a little Sean Connery for ya!) So I realized I have NO egg stamps, embellishments or even paper. Wow, I can't believe I admitted that considering all the junk I do have! You would think there would be something hiding somewhere, but alas, twas not....
But I DO have an oval punch and thought it would suffice for making some eggs. So here is my card:

I punched out three different ovals and stamped on them with white to decorate them up a bit. Those are actually 3 different colored paper (melon, tangerine, berry sorbet) but the color is a bit off.  I double stamped the background using the Lined Notes CHF backgrounder (I used it a few times) and then stamped polka dots over top. I was a bit concerned about how it would turn out, but I actually like the results.
I decided the eggs needed a little extra oomph so I enlisted my favorite embellishments for the task. I can't seem to get out of a card without using at least one of these items and my drawers are stuffed with them!

So that's it for today. I have been baby sitting an extra little body this week and she has been taking up a lot of time, but it has finally come to an end, so I am breaking out my crafts and am feeling like myself again!
