Dies R Us Easter

It is time for a new challenge at Dies R US and it is all about Easter. I decided this Praying Hands Egg by Tutti Designs was a perfect Easter Image. I had some paper that reminds me a bit of stained glass so I used that as a background. I cut the egg die twice, once in black and once in white. I used a green marker on the white die cut to go around the frame of the egg and the trim of the sleeves. I also used my stylist to give a little dimension to the flowers. Then I used markers to color the hands.  Behind the Egg die, I used the Rose Frame also by Tutti Designs.  I like that frame so much that I have used it on every card I have made recently. I must put it away. The Happy and Easter are Cheery Lynn Dies. I should have used a darker color to make the sentiment pop more, but I did layer it three times so it shows better INRL.  I think this Praying hands egg would make a beautiful sympathy card too.
