Play Date Cafe Challenge #23

Something different.  I covered plastic eggs in yellowed ledger paper--papier mache style--then rolled them in silver paint and fine gold glitter while still wet.  After drying I tied them uyp with ribbon and set them in a basket with mom and dad bird.  Dad perched on a cream colored candle with some help from the hot glue gun.  I usually work in very bright colors, but I liked working with the various shaded of blue here.  The ladies at PDC boost my confidence with their very sweet comments on everything I've done so far.  They spend a lot of time and effort spreading their love and it is appreciated!
