You're A Good Egg

I'm continuing to work on my Easter cards that I need both to mail out and to sell at our church Easter Sale.
My first card is a clean and simple design -  I adhered strips of patterned paper to a white card stock panel - then cut it with a stitched mat rectangle die and layered it over a white card stock base - easy peasy!  And it looks so Easter/Springy with the pretty papers!  The only stamping on this is the Happy Easter from the Spring Baskets set by Waltzingmouse in the bottom corner.  Then I just added some coordinated colored sequins.
I used the sketch from this week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge.
My second card is a little more involved - with a patterned paper panel, a tag and some layered stampings.  The stamps are from A Good Egg by Waltzingmouse.  I used the cut files for this set to stamp the egg and banner on.  I cut the tag with Tag Sale #5 die from PTI
For my card design I used the Freshly Made Sketch

I chose my colors from the Color Throwdown challenge
