The Golden Egg


This weeks 'Mamma' challenge was an ATC sized egg!
For the front I used embossed gold paper and ran some organza ribbon around the entire egg. I added some sparkly ribbon looped into a flower shape, secured with a shiny gold brad and some gold and pearl beads on gold wire. The sparkly ribbon has string threaded through it so I used the string to 'tie' the egg closed.

Inside I used gold embossed paper again, two printed images from my stash, some red/gold lace and red gems...

The opened out egg needs enlarging to view properly!

Have I told you that every time I visit your blog I get a giggle from that cute baby with the boobie shirt on? She makes me smile everytime I see her. Now I do come to see your incredible creations but I must admit, I do love coming here to see her too.
