Dream Valley Challenge 30 - Earth Tones

This week our challenge at Dream Valley is Earth Tones.  Your creation, whether its a card, a scrapbook page or even some jewellery, just has to be in the colours of the natural Earth!  Think browns, oranges and greens - those sorta colours!  And remember as long as you follow the rules you can enter anything you like.  We have a fab prize this week too.  A voucher for £20 to spend in Bead Crafty.

I used a Stampin' Up set - Natures Walk and stamped the eggs using SU Soft Suede onto Kraft card (sorry for bad lighting in pic), then coloured in a couple of the eggs using Derwent Drawing pencils.  I die cut the image and matted it using Oval Nestabilities.  I made a card blank again using Kraft and added a strip of dark brown.  Next I added a strip of caramel coloured card with the edges punched using a Martha Stewart punch - scallop dot.  On top of that another strip of Kraft which I embossed with the Cuttlebug using the Forsest Branches folder.  Lastly I added some feathers from my stash.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Inspired by Spring
Everybody Art - Spring
