Easter Bonnet

Oh my goodness, I am so happy to finally get a new card posted on my blog. I have been so busy this past week with work, then Ash Wednesday was super busy for me since I work at a Catholic church. Then my husband had surgery on Friday and I had an all-day retreat I facilitated on Saturday. So today, Sunday, I took some me-time and finished this card that I started earlier this week. Isn't this sweet little chick from Rubbernecker just the cutest in her fashionable Easter bonnet? I stamped her on 140# watercolor paper with Versamark and Superior Black India ink and then clear embossed her. She was watercolored with my SU ink pads. I found a pack of spring like paper with colors that matched up well with SU's Blue Bayou, Groovy Guava and Certainly Celery. It's Chloe's Closet from Making Memories. I used Stickles on the flowers to give them some extra bling.
I took some of the double stitched grossgrain ribbon form SU, gathered it and glued it to the back of the circle I cut with my Nesties and then mounted that piece on a larger scalloped circle aslo cut with Nesties. The eggs too were stamped on the watercolor paper, watercolored and then glazed.
This card is a little departure from my vintage, retro, distressed norm but it was fun to work on.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Chick and Easter Blessings are from Rubbernecker and the Easter eggs are from Studio G Clear stamps (the $1 stamps from Jo-Ann's).
Paper: SU's Groovy Guava, Blue Bayou and Whisper White, Making Memories Chloe's Closet DSP.
Ink: Versamark, Stewart Superior Black India Ink, Blue Bayou, Certainly Celery, Almost Artichoke and Groovy Guava
