Flower Pot Chick

Hi everyone! It feels like eons since I've played in my craft room so I took a short break from studying today to create this card. I'm playing along with the April Free Stamp of the Month Challenge at Delightful Inspiration. I also found inspiration for the layout using I {Heart} Sketch #14.  The image used on today's card is the Flower Pot Chick digital stamp by From The Heart Stamps. The printed papers are from the Fly A Kite patterned paper collection by October Afternoon.

My card base is Honeycomb layered with White Cardstock then Lemonade Patterned Paper. The strip is Dandelions Pattern Paper layered on White Cardstock. The shadow layer is Strawberry Jam Patterned Paper layered on White Cardstock. The image was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper and image with Tea Dye Distress Ink and a sponge. To embellish the card I added white lace, a bow made with White Grosgrain Ribbon and some dew drops.

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