Easter Joy

Good morning! I decided I like the SCS sketch challenge so much that I would make another card.... I had seen some CAS cards in the gallery and loved them, so I thought I would give it a go. I had originally put the sentiment on a pink panel, but something about it seemed "not right". It has been sitting in my work area for the past couple of days and today I decided to try to make it "right". I decided to go with a white panel and I really think it looks a lot more cohesive with the white card base. What do you think? Which do you like better?

The DP was still sitting on my table from a previous project, so I went with it.... The image is colored with pencils and accented with glitter. I used some bling to finish it off. It was quick and easy! I love that!

Image/Sentiment: Stampendous Clear Set "Chick Ears"

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Hibiscus Burst, Flair Designs DP

Embellies: Doodlebug Glitter, MAMBI Bling

Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, EK Success 3D Dots

I am also entering this in this week's Corrosive Challenge, which was to use pastels. Janet is looking for another DT member, so I will throw my hat in too!

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by...have a good one!

Oh, this is so sweet! I love that happy little chick, and the paper goes so well with the image.

What a fun little card! And I agree... definitely the white panel sentiment! Isn't it funny how one small detail may catch our eye as crafters and we know it's not quite what we want?! lol Your chick is just super cute, Angela! Thanks for playing along @ The Corrosive Challenge and for your interest in the DT spot! :)

This is so cute, and I totally agree with you that the white behind the sentiment looks much better than the pink! Thanks very much for joining in with our Pastel Colours challenge at Corrosive Challenges, and the DT call! :D

Fabulous card my friend! I love all the glitter on the image and the sentiment is perfect in white, so much better than the pink one.
