Egg Box

We have new neighbours, and we wanted to make them feel welcome, but what to give someone you've never met? So hubby had the idea of fresh free range eggs from our hens, and then he said "you'll be able to pretty them up" so I worked my magic on this egg box, and I love how it's turned out.

I've used pretty paper and stamped using an egg image to produce the belly band for the egg box, add a sentiment and some ribbon and I love how it's got a homey feel.
The card is brayered, after clear embossing the image.

Our new neighbours were over the moon :-)
Have a great sunday
