I used the Tattered Floral Garland die and cut out a whoooooole bunch of flowers out of white cardstock. I gave them some dimension and layered them up a bit. I used a strong tacky glue to attach them to the egg (Api's Crafter's Pick, The Ultimate! glue). Once everything was dry, I misted it with some bright, cheerful colors.
The base is a wooden spool painted green with a Tapered Fringe die cut glued around it. A wooden dowel is glued in the center and the foam egg sticks on it. I added a little jute twine, a memo pin and a little Easter graphic snipped from the Tim Holtz Seasonal paper pad. It would be fun to make a bunch of different eggs like this to use as table decorations.

You will be directed to various places to search out the secret letter that each design team member is sharing. My letter is:
