Easter Chicks w/Bird Punch




I combined the sketch for ODBD Shining Light Challenge with colors from Stacey's Curtain Call Challenge (So Saffron, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake) to create this spring card. This was my first time using the 2-step bird punch to make Easter chicks (go to my tips/tutorial heading at the top of my blog to find the link to Ann's blog) and they were so easy and fun to make! I used tiny black pearls for the eyes instead of the punched eye that Ann used. The lilies were colored with Copics, cut out and glued to the card. Yellow Stickles were added to the centers. The white oval was embossed to add a bit more dimension. I was stumped by these colors at first, but was happy with the end result. I wanted to add a sentiment to the front, but ran out of room, so it will go on the inside. Thanks for stopping by!
