Still 14 days to go for Challenge #8

There are still 14 days to go in Angie's Digital Stamps Challenge #8, which has an optional twist of Easter. You should check it out and see all of the lovely designs our loyal followers have done for us.

My card used the Chick Hatching Digital Stamp Image from Angie's Etsy site.  Angie has a wide range of digis for a large number of occasions, so if you're ever in need, check out this site.

I wanted to keep my card suitable to give to a child, so the only embellishment used was the cheesecloth layer, keeping it from being too staid and boring. I did do some "cutting outside of the cutting die" which is an interesting technique to add interest. Having the egg shell and grass overhang the foam mounted stitched rectangle allowed the background to show through.

The image was coloured simply with Copics.

Hope you have a wonderful and uplifting Easter. Best wishes to all.

P.S. Here is my card for the last Challenge. I wasn't well enough to do the post for it, but wanted you to see it anyway. The optional twist was "lots of green".  

I used a cutting file "Leaf Frame Card" by Bird and placed Angie's Bird Singing Digital Stamp Image behind it. The sentiment strip was lettered using some rub-on letters (Oh how I hate those things - I always get bits stuck where they shouldn't be and waste so many letters I have to cobble together new letters because I've run out of what I need. But It's better to use them up than let them deteriorate to nothing.)
