FS425 EGGcellent Friend

Today, I am playing in the
Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoaststampers
 Congratulations countrybeamer, this week's Featured Stamper.
I cased THIS soft and pretty card. 
My Differences: 
One Layer Card
Gold Cord
Colored Image
Scored Lines
 I used my stamp set I illustrated EGGcellent.
I masked off where I wanted the image then I stamped in the center, then stamped on the right and left to make it look like a continuous tree, I did mask off the sides a tiny bit so the trunks did not stamp on the sides.  If there were any gaps I just filled them in with a fine pen. Then I sponged just on the top and bottom giving an omber effect.  I wanted to keep it soft like my inspiration, so I colored the eggs and leaves with soft colors.
For the inside, I used another of my sets, Picking Daisies.
