Jelly Beans

Hi Everyone,
It's Thursday and that means its time for the weekly challenge over at Art Impressions. I thought I'd share with you my take on this weeks challenge. The theme is: Inspired by Candy. At first I had a devil of a time coming up with something for this theme. But,as I thought about candy, the upcoming Easter holiday came to mind.  I remembered chocolate bunnies and then jelly beans came to mind and then I remembered when I was a kid I used to get hollowed out sugar eggs in my Easter basket. So, with those ideas in mind, here is what I came up with.

Supplies used:
Spellbinders Dies - Nested Eggs S4-264
Copic Markers - E25, E71
Embossing Powder - Sparkle N Sprinkle -  Shimmer EP137
Designer paper & various colors of card stock

I made the large egg to appear to be hollow with a chocolate bunny inside.  Those sugar eggs that I received as a child, were always decorated around the opening and they were always so cute.I used the shimmer EP to make the inside of the egg sparkle. I also colored the bunny using brown copic markers to make him look like chocolate. OK, now I have just awakened my sweet tooth, I guess I will have to get some jelly beans. Yum,Yum.

Barbara, such an adorably sweet card! Love how you used lots of Easter Eggs to show the bunny has been super busy with the lively colors and designs on each. The embellishment around the large egg really sets the tone. Sparkly, too! How cute!
