Is a Football the Right Shape for an Easter Egg?

I really wanted to make an egg shaped card.......I mean really wanted to! And would you believe that with all the Cricut cartridges I own, none of them have an egg shape? So what's a girl to do? Improvise!

I used the Just Because Cards cartridge, and used the football image! OK.....maybe it's a bit wonky.....but it was the best I could do! ; ) I used my Gypsy to weld the egg/football together and cut it at 5". I also used a sweet Crafty Secret's image from the Seasonal Image and Journal Booklet. The frame is by Tattered Angels and was inked and glittered. I also added some Platinum Stickles to the edges.
I cut the tag using my Sentimental's cartridge and a sentiment by Papertrey Ink.

So are ya laughing at me? It's totally OK......I know I am a dork! ; )


Have a wonderful and blessed Easter!

It looks like an egg to me...if not, it's the fanciest football I've ever seen. Happy Easter!
