Egg-plant Flower pot

I know some of you have probably moved past Easter projects this late in the game but Easter is my favorite Holiday and I can't let go just yet! Today's technique on SCS is to make a flower pot card. My WONDERFUL upline Linda Heller has a fabulous tutorial on her Stamping school website for this type of card. I highly recommend signing up. Really she is great! When I read today's challenge my mind immediately went to "eggplant" My family has an Easter party every year and we have an egg decorating contest, the competition gets pretty intense as the "grand prize" is a gift card to a yummy restaurant. many years ago David came up with the idea of making an egg-plant complete with a pot and soil it was so cute....but 2nd place!! My egg-plant flower pot is made of real rust paper, and sponged with rust, chocolate, and vanilla ink to give it that "clay" look and texture. My eggs are from SU eggcitement{retired} and my flowers are punches with little bling centers. The leaves are old olive sizzix die cut. The edge of my pot rim is punched with the border scallop punch and the tag is the large SU punch with my sentiment in cocoa in sponged with rust ink. Baja breeze ribbon for the final touch.
