Spring Garden Chickie


Here is my first card being on the guest design team for Whimsy and Stars Studio.  I chose this darling image, Spring Garden Chickie to design with. 




It's so cute, Springy and so me!!  I printed and colored up the image with my Copic markers, added some sparkle with my Stardust gel pen.  The patterned paper is Nana's Kids collection by DCWV.  I used the Eyelet Lace Punch by Martha Stewart to make a border at the bottom and added lots of pearls.  Pearls, Easter and Springtime seem to all go together.  I used some white grograin ribbon to make a big, fluffy bow and added the butterfly for the perfect touch.  Just a hint...the butterfly was originally white and I wanted it to stand out against the white ribbon, so I colored it with one of my Copic markers.  This card and image makes me happy!  Stop on over at the Whimsy and Stars Studio and check out some of the other guest designers work and Mabelle's adorable images.

Hi Pat, I just love this card; the MS border punch makes it so sweet and elegant; love how you adorned the pearls like that. The polka dotted paper is lovely; my favorite kind of paper. I love the bow and your little garden chickie brings out the spring with those wonderful colors! Thanks for joining us at Tellen's Place this week for our "Embellishment" challenge. :~)
