My project is:-

Eggs-cellent Digi Stamp 
from Sentimental Susan
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I used a Plain White pre-cut 
Window Gatefold Card
Then using 'Pastel Swirls' Backing Paper
I covered the inside of the Card.
Next using the matching 'Pastel Eggs' Backing Paper,
I cut out the 2 'Gates' on the Front,
making sure to cut out the 'Window' area.

 I drew around my Image using the 'Window' 

from the Front of the Card as a template
and fussy cut it out.

I coloured in my Image 
using my Promarker Pens.
               Eggs -            Buttercup
                                     Meadow Green
                                     Pastel Blue

I used a Gold Metallic Gel Pen

to go around the cut-out 
of my Image inside the Card.

To finish off my card
I added some Pastel Pink, Pastel Blue 
and Meadow Green Paper Blossoms
(Special Delivery, Helz Cuppleditch).
Putting a 10mm Clear Crystal Dotted Rhinestone Gem
in the center of each flower
And using a strip of Pink Checked Ribbon
I Hand-made a Bow for the Top Right Corner.  
For emphasis on the Gate-fold 
I used some Gold Peel-off Edging
And finally I placed 3 Flat-Back Blue Pearls 
on each of the Top Left and Bottom Right Corners.
