Easter Chicks and TPE #8, Daring Card Makers

This week at the Pink Elephant the challenge is to make an Easter card or project. Honestly, it's a little hard to believe that Easter is around the corner! Although, we are happy to see it arrive! This time of year is such a blessings to us in southern Ohio. The budding trees and green sprouts peeking out of the ground are quite a refreshing sight! It's also nice to see the little robins join us again. They are a sweet reminder of Spring! So, in honor of the is a little Easter treat. (This card is now available to purchase in my Etsy shop, see sidebar for link)

I did enjoy creating this. Well, for the most part....It was a little slow going but I think it was due to the fact that it was so late by the time I started and finished it. I don't work too well when I'm sleepy! :) The paper and chicks are Cosmo Cricket. While shopping yesterday I came across them. So....once again, they followed me home! You will be seeing more projects from this line....The kit has a ton of CUTE stuff in it!

I think, for the most part.....this card is self explanatory. But... for fun I'll give you a few highlights.
I used two pieces of PP and paper border. The edges are painted and lightly distressed. I added micro beads to parts of the PP to sweeten things up a little. The berries are from the same Cosmo Cricket kit. I love the way they make this card pop. I ran the chicks wings through the CB to give them a little texture. I also, used pinking shears on the edge of the card. And on the edges of my ribbon. The pinking shears are fast becoming a staple in my supply box!
I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend. I'm looking forward to a week of fun challenges and projects!
