Spring Chicken

Hello everyone!  Short post from me today.  I just wanted to share a card I had made for a friend of mine for her birthday using the SSS Birthday Farm Animals stamp set.

I just think these little farm animals are so cute. This is a top fold standard A2 card.  I used the cardstock from the September monthly card kit along with the stamp set from that kit called Birthday Bits. I stamped my balloons from the set and then masked some of them off as well as the circle I wanted to use as the scene to highlight my little chicken.  Using my daubers,  I lightly inked the circle with Buttercup and Lagoon inks from CTMH. I then colored in my balloons and my chicken with my copics.  After fussing cutting my chick out, I popped it up on some 3d tape.  The little border at the bottom is also from the SSS card kit stamp set and I colored it with the same colors from my balloons.

I loved all the bright colors in this card, and of course, the little Spring chicken.  I'll list all the colors I used below, along with some challenges I'll be entering this card into.

That's it for me today.  Thank you for stopping by!
