Egg-a-licious Easter

Happy Easter card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs
It's almost Easter (how did that happen??), so I thought I'd ink up the SugarPea Designs Egg-a-licious stamp set to put together a card for the holiday.  My inspiration came from the current challenge at The Card Concept.  Those luscious pink dyed eggs in the inspiration photo are so eye-catching!

My original plan was to create a design with eggs in a similar vivid pink shade. I ended up with something on the softer side--much softer, actually!  The egg trio was stamped in a pale pink pigment ink.  Each image was cut with the matching SugarCuts Egg-a-licious die.  I arranged the eggs over a doily set at the left edge of a striped patterned paper panel.  I pulled out my long-neglected sewing machine and used it to stitch around the edges of the panel before adhering it on an angle to a kraft cardstock panel.  The set's "Happy Easter" sentiment was stamped in kraft pigment ink on a pale pink SugarCuts Stitched Flags die cut.  I tucked it underneath one of the eggs, then added a pretty seam binding bow to top them off.  The finished panel was adhered to a cream card base.
