SFYTT Happy Easter

Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!

Today I am sharing a card made with Jen's Sketch for you to Try. My card is very much inspired by this cutie made by Nancy Riley!

I loved her white BG and the use of the Prints patterns DS paper. For my card I started with a base of so saffron and followed that up with a piece of whisper white that I scored the BG with my Scor Pal. I scored at half inch increments diagonally starting at one corner and then flipping to another corner to go the other direction.

I used some bashful blue card stock with the Scallop Trim Border Punch for the edge. I cute four 1-3/4 inch squares of DS paper from a couple of retired hostess print packs. The stamp set I used is "A Good Egg? I stamped the chick three times, once on the white and then again on some so saffron and a piece of the DS paper. I cut them out and pieced them onto the chick. I used my circle and scallop circle nesties to cut out the chickie and the mat. I mounted that piece with some dimensionals. I added some so saffron ribbon and the sentiment is stamped with black stazon onto white and then matted with so saffron. I hand cut the end pieces. I added a button from my stash with a bit of linen thread tied through it.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
