Egg shaped Easter cupcake card

I've made three Easter cards this year: today's, this Eggceptional Hedgehog already posted, and  another yet to post. I'd planned to try and do a few more, but I think I'll leave it at that. As I explained in my last St. Patrick's Day post, we're not supposed to be leaving our homes right now except for exceptional circumstances and as 'Mailing Easter cards' isn't one of them (we don't have home pickup and my nearest mailbox is a ways away), my Easter greetings will probably be limited to Skype calls this year.

This card features my DOcrafts Xcut egg die set, my Easter go to fav (retired). Out of curiosity, I searched the blog and I've done eight posts featuring it. It was interesting to see the different ways I've used it. These Your Egg-cellent and Bite me cards are two I especially like.

The Digital Delights March Cupcake digi/Easter Sentiment image was printed out a few years ago and I just hadn't got around to coloring it. In the spirit of thriftiness, I thought it time to do so.

Paper is Dovecraft Back to Basics Bright Spark 6x6 paperpack. Ribbons and a flower dress it up.
