Foil Easter Egg Card for Gina Marie Designs

I designed this card for my friend Gina Gerfen to showcase these fun Easter egg dies in her Gina Marie Designs line. You can find them at for only $8. The set also comes with a plain solid egg that can be used behind the eggs with designs.
I watercolored some purple splatters on watercolor paper for the background behind these eggs. After the paper had dried, I rounded the edges and mounted it with glue tape to a 5x7 card base after rounding the card base's corners, also. Then I paired up the 5 different patterns of eggs into sets using one with the pattern punched out and one with the pattern still intact in various colors of metallic foil by Spellbinders. I used foam tape to adhere the eggs to the watercolor paper. I like how they turned out. What do you think?
