Shabby Chic Easter Chick

Good morning!  It's time for a new sketch from the ladies at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Jessi has drawn our sketch this week and also provided the DT with some awesome crochet mats to use...how cool is that?! I was so excited when I opened the package...the mats are really awesome!  A great big "thank you" to my teamie, Jessi!

I knew I needed to pick an image that was "just right" to use with my mat.  I decided to go with a Stampendous Easter chick...I think she is just adorable in her Easter finery!  I distressed my papers and embellished with a felt flower and a bit of bling.

Image: Stampendous
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, SU! Blushing Bride, Simple Stories DP
Embellies: MAMBI Bling, Handmade Flower
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, MFT Die-namics Royal Rose Die/PTI Dark Chocolate Felt

I hope you will take a peek at the rest of the line up at the TMS blog; play along for the chance to win some of Jessi's crochet mats!

Thanks for stopping by!
