Easter Eggs x Two

Well -  we are back to Monday again (where do the weekends go?!) and I'm back with two cards to share -  I needed a few more Easter cards - having sold most of mine at our church sale yesterday (!)  so here are two that I made.
This first card is clean and light - I used some eggs I had already die cut with my Nested Egg Nestabilities but then didn't use.  The paper is from the Sweet Sorbet pack by Stampin' Up with a piece of torn Washi tape behind them.  The two smaller eggs are popped up on foam dots.  I used my ever present Stitched Mat Rectangle die for the panel, layering it over a white card base.
For my second card I went colorful and bright using primary colors for my Nestie eggs, decorating them with a chevron die cut, Washi Tape and Liquid Pearls.  I made my flower with Buttons Stack die set from PTI, and the grass is a die from MFT - all popped up on foam dots.  I layered everything over a Stitched mat rectangle die cut of patterned paper from DCWV.
My inspiration for the design of both cards was the photo for this week's Addicted to Stamps Challenge
I'm also linking to the Cut It Up Challenge -  Easter and use a die cut 
and Cas-ual Fridays -  Good Egg - Use Ovals 
I'll be back tomorrow with more Easter inspiration for my monthly post for the Waltzingmouse - Team Talk Blog - I hope you can stop by!

Both your cards are stunning! I love the soft colors and the washi on the first, and the bright colors on the second. Also, the great frame die!
