No one said how I had to deliver the eggs!

I’ve got another fun image from the new Teen Scene Holiday collection from Simply B Stamps, this is Floppy Hoppy Christian.

This image just makes me think of “tricking” at Halloween, I mean there’s a guy in a silly costume and he is clearly about to throw an egg at someone or something.  I was almost going to do up my card in Halloween papers but then I found the sweet Yellow Bicycle paper pad in my stash so decided to do this as a true Easter card, even if it isn’t actually Spring here in Australia for Easter so the colours of Halloween would have suited better!

To make up my card I followed the current sketch at Sketch n’ Dies, I used several Nesties to cut the various elements so I’m covered on the dies part of the challenge too.  In my usual style, despite all the die cuts on my card, I decided to fussy cut and pop the image off the page, hence the bit of white around those super thin whiskers!  For all fuss and bother I am entering this in the current challenge at Cute Card Thursday although I am not too sure how clever my cutting really is given the angst it sometimes causes.
