Easter Chicks

This is an Easter card that I have made just for fun, it might find it's way to one of our neighbours.


I have used a cute image from Pink Gem Designs called With Love Chicks and papers from the Forever Friends Spring Time collection.

I coloured my image with a combination of ProMarkers and Spectrum Noir pens and added a Die-namics die cut corner and bow, the scalloped border is an EK Success edge punch.  To embellish I added glitter and 3D Crystal Lacquer to the flowers and some small pearls from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
