I could not come up with a unique idea for an Easter card. I looked through the cards I made in Sue's "Thoughts and Prayers" Stampin' Up! class. I decided to use a sketch from a card Sue had us make. Then I sifted through my I've-had-this-forever embellies. I found three Laura Ashley buttons. I recalled I had a 12x12 of I've-had-this-forever Laura Ashley double-sided paper to coordinate. (Let's define "forever" as 5 1/2 years.) I stamped with blush blossom and mellow moss inks. I colored the chicks (a PSX stamp)with barely banana, their beaks & legs with more mustard, and their hats with apricot appeal. I colored the ribbons & leaves on the hats with mellow moss and the flowers on one hat with blush blossom. I eked out three cards from that 12x12 sheet, which worked out nicely since I had three buttons! Ah...no scraps :) The doily border punch is Martha Stewart. I masked the chicks and sponged mellow moss for the "grass". I think I need more practice with this :)
I also made this card out of the scraps from this post.
