Easter Chick

Hello, everyone.  Before I share my card, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to my newest followers:  LoriDawn, and Granmargaret - so nice to have you here!  

Today's card features the adorable Easter Chick from Gerda Steiner Designs.  Gerda is illustrating again after a rough few months, and her new designs are cuter than ever! She is offering several sweet Easter freebies, and she is having a monthly challenge with this one:  Easter Chick.  Why not go over and snag a few of her freebies, enter her challenge with Easter Chick, and most important, make sure you leave Gerda some love - tell her Fit Kitty sent you!

Well, I really got carried away with Easter Chick - I couldn't stop adding little "bits and bobs" to my card, but I love how it turned out!  I paper-pieced the egg and coloured the chick with my Prismacolor pencils. The cute sentiment is from Doodle Pantry.  Here are all the other supplies used:
  • Dies:  Butterfly (Memory Box), Cat (All Occasion Dies)
  • Ribbon:  Yellow (May Arts), Orange (Dollarama)
  • Patterned paper:  Recess of Carson Dellosa
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Accents:  Charm (Stamp and Create), holographic die cut (Recollections), dragonfly, butterfly, flowers, leaves, brads, buttons (dollar store)
