FCCB Challenge #100 and CCR Shape Card Challenge

Fantabulous Cricut is celebrating their 100th challenge, with a color challenge.  Green Turquoise and purple.  CLICK HERE to join in the fun.  CCR is having a shaped card challenge CLICK HERE to check it out.  I used Damask Decor for this egg shaped card.  There were only three layers on this cut (The lacy egg, the flower and flower background.  It looked very plain so I put some turquoise glitter ribbon behind some of the cut then mounted the egg on purple glitter paper and trimmed around it before adhering to turquoise card.  It still looked blah so i added a purple, green and turquoise print from K&Company on the inside. I had some K&Company chipboard corners that fit perfectly on the outer corners.  After much trial and error, I am very happy with the end result.  I may make more and use them for Easter Cards.
