I'm Here!!!

I have Spring Fever! Do You?!! This adorable little chick from McMahon 5 Designs is just so full of joy that it's finally Spring! We used to raise chicks when my sons were younger, so coloring up this little cutie brought back all sorts of fun memories of watching them hatch and grow. I colored this one using my Prisma Pencils and then cut and layered it. I used Frosted Lace Stickles on the chick to give the effect of downy fuzz. Flower Soft is under foot and accents of stickles on the egg shell and background.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Stamping Sisters in Christ - Paper Tole
Going Grey with ScrapCreations- Think Spring
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge- pink, green and flowers
Incy Wincy- Think Spring or Easter
Creative Card Crew Going Dotty (embossed circles and dots)
Cute Card Thursday Dimension (in flower)
Handful of Stamps Something sweet, a baby chick!

Michelle, I love this little chick! I remember watching chicks hatch at school when I was younger and those are the kind of memories you don't forget. I'm sure your boys remember that too! Pretty colors on your card just perfect for Spring! Love the embossing and the stickles that look like downy fluff! Just gorgeous!
