My DD's Art as Inspiration

(card posted at the end)
Happy Friday!! Look at this amazing sugared egg that my 4th grader made at school!!! Her whole class got to make these and then brought them home yesterday. Of course they had help making those gorgeous flowers on top, but the whole thing is so beautiful!!

Here's a better picture of the top of flowers:
So, this beauty inspired me to do another egg card, but this time I colored it like the sugared egg...I even added Dazzling Diamonds to the white egg to resemble the sparkly sugar.
This card went to none other than my daughter's teacher today.
And now I'm about wiped out with Easter cards and am itching to do bug cards for some reason?? Ladybugs in particular! We'll see what I can come up with in the next few days. ☺
Have a Blessed Easter everyone!!

Oh My Gosh, I though you were going to say you bought this at some fancy store...I am so impressed by your daughters work! It's beautiful. We used to have sugar eggs when we were little, I loved looking inside them.
