Easter Hugs

Had to go buy one of Mo Manning's adorable new Easter images.  Meet Easter Carly all dressed up and on an egg hunt.  Mo's ability to capture personalities and attitudes with a few simple lines always amazes me.   I used some new purchases, the most striking is that Spellbinders Borderabilities Grand 12" On the Vine border die.  I only have a Cuttlebug but you can cut/emboss these long dies with 2 passes on each end.  I only used a few inches of it and popped it over the popped image panel.  I also used a new MS punch...the picket fence which Michael's had on sale.   I'm not very good at using sketches but Debby4000 inspired me with her adorable card here, so this is my take on EAC's challenge.

CS: Bazzill; DP: MME Happier; Mo Manning Easter Carly digistamp; Sentiment is computer generated; Copics & Prismacolor pencils; Foam dots; Nestie ovals, labels and Vine Borderability, MME Baker's Twine, American Craft ribbon, MS fence and eyelet border punch, a bit of stickles on the eggs; a tiny button and flowers from my stash.
