Have an Egg-stra Special Easter

Welcome again to another Saturday challenge by Shannon's Sentiments. You saw our new release last week Saturday up to the blog hop on the 15th. This week our Guest Designer has chosen creative folds for our challenge.

There's a lot in this card. I may not cover it all but I'll give it a try. The card itself was cut using the Creative Memories oval die cutting system. Leave a spot for the hinge and then overlap two to get the three panels. The cardstock in which the card is made of is by Brazzill and sprayed with a combination of water and Perfect Pearls by Ranger. All the sentiments along with the basket and big egg are all digi's from Shannon's Sentiments. The long strip of paper in the middle is by Paper Salon and the ribbon on each side of the card was given to me as a gift from an online buddy. Basically I'm saying it's unknown. Yellow paper is by Creative Memories, white cardstock is by Recollections.
First  page the eggs in the basket are by Creative Memories, Karen Foster and Me and My Big Ideas. The stamp used to make the basket looked weaved on the bottom is by Inkadinkado with ink by Versa Mark and embossing powder by Stampendous. I did use the blending tool by Ranger to make the basket appear brown over the embossing. The handle of the basket is stamps with Ranger Walnut stain and a Stampin' Up stamp (Canvas I think).
Page two the egg is stamped by Magical by Hero Arts using Versa Mark ink and Stampendous embossing powder then shaded with Close to my Heart Buttercup and Ranger Spun Sugar. The rick rack is unknown and part of the gems are by Imaginisce. I got their I Rock tool and was having fun playing with it. Green egg is by Close to my Heart with ink by Stampin' Up and flower by Sassafras.
Page three is the simplest of them all with just a few flower stickers from Sticko.
Any questions on this card or any of my work email me at I can always duplicate a card for you to purchase.
Be sure to go check out the other DT blogs and creations to see what they have come up with for the creative folds challenge. You can find the links to their blogs at Shannon's Sentiments. Also if you are looking for some freebie's visit her shop at this LINK. The coffee cup digi is very popular.
