My version uses Textured cardstock, a really cool Variegated Metallic Paper Sample that I had and a very "Retro" looking piece of scrapbook paper that was gifted to me. I used a piece of the leftover scrap from the sample paper and the CB die to cut out the sentiment. The Tea Bag Medallion is made from 1" squares of scrapbook paper and Tia Van Zant's Kiting Around fold. I added a bit of extra bling to the flowers on the back of the "card" and some peel-offs to finish it off, then added the package of Kleenex to complete the project.

I have attached a close up so hopefully you can see how shimmery the background is with the acrylic paints.

Papers used are a purple textured metallic paper that I picked up at Walmart as well as a Purple Mirri Board, both have been cut with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Labels die. The whole thing is mounted on Textured White Cardstock.
Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch was used on the metallic purple cardstock and the Martha Stewart Lattice Punch was used on a bit of green cardstock for the "grass" under Emma's feet.
Here is a closer look at Emma. She has Bling flowers with Peel-off waste used to make a Bow and Ribbons for her bouquet. The lace on Emma's dress has also been "blinged" with Aleene's Tack-it Over and Over and Glamour Dust.
For those interested in Tea Bag Folding, the medallion on my card is done using the Variation of Carol's Crazy Zig-Zag Fold and a tile by my good friend Marie B. I have included the fold directions for those who would like to try their hand at folding....more of my Tea Bag directions to follow in future posts, so keep your eyes peeled. ;-) (just click on the directions to bring them up full screen.)

I have used an image from Fred She Said called FSS- Bunneh! - Easter Bunny Digital Stamp. I have done my coloring with Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils and added just a touch of Aleene's Tack-it Over and Over to the spots on the Eggs and some Glamour Dust. I cut out the Bunneh with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Labels. The paper behind Bunneh is some Lime Green Mirri Board. The punch along the edge is one of Martha Stewart's Deep Edge punches, the Buttons along the bottom are a Cuttlebug Embossing folder and inked with Color Box ink in Lime Green. I have edged the Bunneh and the edging strip as well as the sentiment tag with marker (see my Tutorial here). A bit of Bling and a Double Bow and the card is finished.
Here is a close-up of the Bunneh, so hopefully, you can see where I have put the Glamour Dust on the eggs.

Please, we would LOVE it if you commented on our posts (We all love to hear what you think of our creations ;-)). We totally love "Fred She Said" images and would like to hear how you feel about them too! Also, along the way, you will see a special CODE WORD. Collect them all up!

Here is my "Fred She Said" creation. I have used the brand new Smelling the Cherry Blossom set to make this card. The card front has all been Digitally manipulated in Photoshop to give the "appearance" of multiple layers and matting, but there are actually no layers or 3-D on this card. The image itself has been colored with Prismacolor Color Pencils and blended with Baby Oil in my version of the Gamsol Techniuqe. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash. The whole thing has been layered on Gold Metallic paper from American Crafts Specialty Paper line.
My special code word is LOVE
