Sweet Chick

Good Afternoon,
What a beautiful day today, very warm and another one for tomorrow! So seeing it feels like spring, I made a card that has a spring/easter feel to it.

Before I go on though, I would like to thank everyone who has commented on my posts and to let you all know that my sister loved her card and she is doing well. Of course I gave it to her with whoopie pies so that made it even sweeter, haha.

So my card today was my first attempt at an easel card. It was not as hard as I thought it might be. I found a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers and that helped me along.

The stamp I used is a digital stamp from Phindy's Place. I just bought it today because it was so cute. The small basket was a separate stamp from great impressions that I stamped, colored and cut out to attach to the card. I thought she needed a little basket or purse to match her bonnet!

I colored her using Copics of course my favorite thing ever. The background paper is a Basic Grey called spheres, but it reminded me of chicken coop wire, don't ask me why. I used Spellbinders dies to make the eyelet circle and the tag on the inside of the card. The sentiment I just typed on my computer. The flowers and rhinestones I had in my stash. I used a little liquid pearl in buttercup for the center of the flower on her hat. I also added a bit of glitter to the flowers.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp:  Mother's Day or Special Girl
Joanne Sheen  Spring is  in the Air
Fab and Funky Mellow yello
Basic Grey Spring Photo Inspiration
CMC Fuzzy Wuzzy Furry animal antics

Thanks for stopping by and don't hesistate to leave me a comment or two!
