Flower Chick

This afternoon was one of those times when everything I tried just didn't look right, boy can it be frustrating!!!! I was trying to create my card for this weeks sketch challenge, now it looks a simple enough sketch doesn't it so why it wasn't working for me I don't know. At the moment the family are keeping well clear LOL. Anyway I am a little happier now, this isn't perfect but it looks ok so I am leaving it while the going is good.

The little chick is a stamp I received from my VSN secret sister, I have always wanted one of these cute little characters so I was happy when I opened my parcel and found it in there. I used my cricut to create the scallop circles - in case anyone is interested I cut the white at 2 1/12 inches real size off; the pink at 2 1/2 inches real size on and then the black at 3 inches real size off - this was you can achieve the variations in size without having to jump from 2 1/2 inches to 3 inches in one layer.

Recipe:
Stamps: Flower Chick - Stampendous; Polka Dots & Paisley - Stampin' Up
Paper: Pink Passion - Stampin' Up; White; Black
Other: Black Ink; Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Black Grosgrain Ribbon; Foam Tape

I think it's adorable! You can't beat pink and black and the color on the chick is just icing on the cake. :)

Such a cute card! I'm wondering why I don't use pink/black more often. Thanks for the inspiration!

Absolutely fab! I was wondering how you made those scallop circles - I thought you had every size of the Marvy Lever punches! How do you make the little shadow - just oval stamps with shadow ink? Deb M in BC CANADA :)
