TMS26: It's Your Day!

Melissa had a fun sketch this week on Tuesday Morning Sketches (see here) . I flipped the sketch and moved the sentiment to the other side since it seemed to fit there better. The card has no embellishing except for glitter; I wanted to go with something else, but just couldn't find the right thing.... Anybody have any ideas?

I have quite a collection of Stampendous Calendar Chicks; I bought one and was hooked! Besides being darling, they are fun to color. Today I colored with my Prismas/Goo Gone; I really liked how the chick turned out this time, I was able to do a bit of shading.... I also used the American Crafts DP I found on an out-of-town shopping trip; I wish I would have bought more...I love the colors!
