Created this Easter card inspired by Easter egg sweets that are made of icing that you see at Easter time with an area that you peek thru to see what's inside the egg.

Started out making this simple and ended up changing it along the way; starting over a couple times. Decided to emboss the inside part after stamping so I embossed it with one of my fav Cuttlebug embossing folders, Swiss Dots. Embossed the outside piece with other fav Cttlebug embossing folder, D'Vine Swirl, to resemble frosting. Added stickles to stamped flower centers. Stamped a Hero Arts sentiment "Happy Easter."
