Lets Get Shabby - Easter

For some reason I thought I had another week left to enter the Lets Get Shabby challenge of Easter - DOH - don't quite know why - its actually tonight I think and I may even be too late (not that thats a bad thing - rushed this and really not happy with it at all :O(

I made a little rectangle case in yellow cardstock, added yellow gingham paper which was inked lightly with Walnut Stain, added some white lace, yellow and white ribbons, and a yellow rose and rosebuds were added as the main decoration. The eggs were covered in white organza and tied with yellow ribbon, added some beaded sprigs and a little yellow rose. The eggs were meant to be chocolate eggs but ... I'd ate them a few days ago thinking I had time to replace them and I wonder why my butt is getter bigger!!! Well here it is (cringe)

A very hasty goodnight from me
