CACB Challenge #31

You know, I love Christmas but it really seems to addle my brain - I almost forgot to post my card this morning! It's time for the final challenge of 2010/first challenge of 2011 at CACB and this time we have something we haven't done before. The theme is Same But Different - the same part is that the Faberge Style Egg, tropical beach image has to be used on your project to qualify and the different part is how you choose to use it. The good news is that for the duration of the challenge, the image is a FREEBIE! To get yours, all you have to do is pop over the challenge blog.
I've made my first ever tri-shutter card with this one. The main image has been coloured with promarkers then scanned into the computer for the smaller images (they're tiny and my eyes wouldn't be up to colouring them by hand lol!) I cut the main image out and shaped it before adding it to a piece of white pearlescent paper. The bp is from mottled stone collection 6. I've embellished with Marianne die swirls, bows from the embellishments sheet and homemade 'brads'. 
I'm also entering my card into these challenges:
I hope you'll all come along and grab your freebie and share all your inspiration with us at CACB. If you like the new egg, there are several others available at Crafty Ann's including another scenic one.
