"You're an Egg-traordinary Friend" Card

If you haven't yet, please take a second to enter my 400 follower giveaway!

First things first:
I have an Easter-ish card to share with you today.  I grabbed this freebie digi from Doodle Pantry and thought it would pair beautifully with this egg picture.
A few years ago I went CRAZY dying eggs for easter.  I made some tie-dye, some stripy etc. Well I took a picture of all my hard work.  When I was ready to make this card, I took the photo a changed the intensity of the colors with my image editing software. I love playing with color!! :)

Here you can see the lace I used to make a border on the card.  I matted my egg photo with a bright pink mat and then a black mat.  Gel pen stitches were added (as always).

Here is a close up of the sentiment.  This is a free download from Doodle Pantry. I added this sentiment on a layer over my picture. I also threw on a white outline to help it stand out from the eggs.

And here is a picture of my altered eggs photo.  Feel free to grab it if you'd like to use it. Just click on it to see it full size and save it to your computer. I love to share! :)
