Chick Parade

Hi everyone!  Hope your weekend is getting off to a great start.  We are hanging around the house today enjoying the warm weather before the rain rolls in tonight.  I thought I'd pop indoors quick to share this cute spring card.  I fell in love with the image as soon as I saw it and couldn't resist coloring the chicks a soft yellow and pairing it with some pretty pink paper.

The beautiful Chick Parade is a digital stamp from Heart Song Designs.  The patterned paper is both the front and back sides of Melody Lane from the Scenic Route Sonoma Collection.  To embellish the card I added some grass and white lace for the border, a white satin bow finished with a coral button threaded with DMC and a pretty pearl in each corner of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
