Chick-a-Dee for Easter?

Well March certainly came in roaring like a lion this morning! No snow in sight, only torrential rains all day. This was perfect weather to ink up a cheerful and bright card. Chick-a-Dee is an Elizabeth Bell creation and is available from Funky Kits under their line of Sugar Nellie stamps. The little chick reminded me so much of Easter that this is the direction my design took me. I colored with my copics and used my cuttlebug, nesties and MS border punch. The dp is from Cosmo Cricket and the yellow cardstock is from PTI. I wanted to stamp the inside flap with my sentiment and then have it folded so Chick-a-Dee could still be seen. I was able to to secure the flap with DMC thread. I'm not particularly thrilled with this, but I did not give myself very much area to work with. I'd love to hear your comments and have you share any techniques that would help! Hope to post a new Magnolia card tomorrow!

Super cute "chick-a-Dee". Just a beautiful Easter Card. And I love your design of the car. Very nicely done....it's as much a work of art as it is a card for the recipient. Fun Fun!
