Spring Chicks

I made this several months ago as part of a one on one swap. Completely forgot I had made an extra only this one is reversed. The chicks are on the other side in the one I swapped out. The particular theme was not Easter, but "inside out" which meant you had to also decorate the inside of the card and the envelope too. I forgot to photograph the envelope and the inside but the envy was eggs all glittery on the back flap and corner front and multi colored and the inside of the card had another half egg and a backwards chick.

I punched each corner with an EK Success punch and edges the mat layers in a coral red color. All the coloring was done with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and then the eggs were touched up with Stickles. I debated whether to tie a bow by itself or to tie it under the layer and went for the latter. I don't know that the bow color is the right one for this but it's what I had handy and sometimes in the cold weather I get too lazy to go upstairs and look for something else.

All the solid color cardstock is from the spring pack of DCWV but I have no idea who makes the patterned piece as it was in my stash. I liked this card pretty well. Sadly I am no longer a part of the group I swapped with. Apparently I am not good enough for them anymore but that is a story for another post which I am working on when my anger abates.

Hey-one more day until it's officially SUMMER!!!!!
ETA-The stamped images were cut out after coloring and glittering. I pop dotted them onto the card when dry.
