Easter Bonnet Chicks

     This has to be one of the cutest ever images and so perfect for girly Easter card!  I made it as my DT card for The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge where we have a perfect theme and twist this week -- both are "Anything Goes."  We're sponsored by Stitchy Bear and these darling chicks can be found in their store.

     The image was printed onto a scrap piece of white CS.  I colored the image with ProMarkers, added glittery sparkle to the mirror and cut the whole thing with a die from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is printed and hand cut.  Both are edged with distress inks.

     The striped orange dp is from DCWV and the other two were in my scrap basket so maker is unknown.  The ribbon was also a scrap and I had just enough to wrap around the card front and then make a separate bow.  I always feel so good about using up scraps -- like it gives me permission to buy more goodies or something.  :-D
