Chantilly Freshly Made

I ordered the Chantilly paper pack because I thought it would be good for little girl birthday cards, but didn't think I would have much use for it otherwise.  The joke was on me.  After making tow birthday cards, I made a welcome baby boy,congratulations and now two Easter cards, this one using this week's layout at Freshly Made Sketches:

I cased the egg from Fancy Melissa who made this wall art.

One of the things I like about Close to My Heart's acrylic stamps is that you can bend them, so I was able to make the sentiment follow the shape of the egg.  Here is the inside:

I am entering this card in the challenges at Heart 2 Heart and Papercraft Star where the theme is Easter.  Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi
