CAS-ual Fridays CFC #42 ~ Hey Baby!

I'm getting this card in just under the wire for CAS-ual Friday CFC #42 ~ Hey Baby!  I realized tonight that I don't have very many baby-type stamps or sentiments, so I had to go a different direction.       
I had my new Memory Box egg die on my craft table and it just so happens to match the floral spray stamps from my WPlus9 Pocketful set!  I wanted to speckle the egg, so I sprayed a piece of cardstock with walnut ink spray.  Tip: spray a whole piece of paper first and then die cut the piece you want (otherwise you'll get an overly-speckled egg, trust me).  I colored the egg with a Copic and cut the top off freehand.  
In the end I stopped myself from putting on a bow, and I'm happy I did!  I'm off to link up to CAS-ual Fridays and I'm off to bed.  
Thanks for visiting! 
{Aloha, jj}

Ink: Cocoa (Memento), Summer Sunrise (PTI), Basil (Fresh Ink), Walnut Ink Spray, Copic
