Cocoa Birthday Chick

Good morning! I was able to do the SCS sketch challenge yesterday; I really look forward to those every week. After I printed the sketch, I was trying to make a plan to incorporate some other challenges as well.... This card works for Aly's Sunday Sketch too; the challenge was to use flowers.

The Stampendous Calendar Chicks are some of my "go to" stamps, along with Changito. After I found an image that would "fit", I next looked for paper. I have had this DP for a long time and I really like the colors; I think this is the first time I have paired in with Close to Cocoa. SU! is retiring this color too; I guess I need to use it up so I can add some new colors to my stash. Is anybody else out there excited to see the new SU! catty on July 1st? I can't wait!

I have colored the image with pencils and added lots of glitter. I didn't have the right color blue for the flower center, so I scribbled on a piece of paper with a pencil before cutting it out and adding matched perfect! Sometimes you just need to improvise!

Image: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, SU! Close to Cocoa, and The Paper Studio DP
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter, MFT Felt
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Sissix Hello Kitty Daisies Die

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are able to enjoy some crafting time as well....

Angela, you just keep knocking my socks off with these cards of yours. I love the color combo here--it's one I wouldn't ordinarily go to, but it looks fab! And of course the little chick image is just so cute and colored so beautifully.
