The Paper Nest Dolls Inspiration Post - Egg Coloring Avery

Good morning and welcome to another of my inspiration posts for The Paper Nest Dolls. I thought I would get ahead on making some Easter cards using the cute Egg Coloring Avery from the recent Spring release. She's just perfect for Easter, don't you think?

I also pulled out my dusty and very neglected Silhouette Portrait machine and amazingly it worked fairly well for this card! It does have its good days sometimes! LOL

And here she is, all in soft, Spring-y pastels...
