Stampin' Up! - Made With Love (for Easter)

Hello, I seem to have been chasing my tails (so to speak) for the last few weeks and only got chance a couple of days ago to think about Easter cards for my family and friends.  As time was passing I needed something quick and simple to put together, I saw a lovely card on the Blog of Jennifer Frost who is a member of the Satmpin' Up! Artisan Design Team.  You can see Jennifer's card here

This is my interpretation of Jennifer's design:

Can you guess how I created the eggs?

I used the balloon background stamps that are part of Balloon Celebration set and punched them out with the matching punch - then I snipped of the ends.  A quick stamp over the stop off my eggs with my all time favourite stamp set (Gorgeous Grunge) and Crumb Cake ink to give them a speckled look and voila! I was quite pleased with them and think they look like the chocolate mini eggs that everyone seems to buy (and eat) at Easter!

I realised that my son would probably prefer not to receive a card with a pretty lacy background so I pulled out the Softly Falling TIEF:

My son might not appreciate a lacy background but he will definitely appreciate the chocolate that will accompany his card!!

Here are both cards complete with a decorated envelope - which version do you prefer?  I would love you to leave me a comment to let me know.
