Green Egg and Chick

Top o' the day to you!  I created this card for the challenge at Fusion found HERE.   I used the sketch and the inspiration photo and came up with these newly hatched chicks and their lucky Irish friend!

I used an oval Framelit die for the eggs and free handed the cracks.

INK: Basic Black, Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie marker
PAPER: Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, So Saffron, Garden Green, Nursery Nest DSP

Circle of Spring

Here is a card for all of my Stampin' Up friends!   No digi images, no Copics, only Stampin Up! This card was inspired by SUO Challenges to make a card with the theme of Easter Fun.  You can see that challenge and play along HERE.  I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday again. The circle element is perfect for the wreath, you can find that challenge HERE.

Here is the card as I originally intended.  Adding the chick from Honeycomb Happiness was a happy afterthought!  I like the card sooo much better with the chick added!
