Easter Chicks

Good morning folks, it's time for a little Easter inspiration from me as I'm here today with details for the new challenge today over at Polka Doodles which with Easter fast looming is to make an Easter creation.
I've gone cute for my card with one of the new Easter digis from Emma Canning which you can find in the Polka Doodles online shop, all ready to download.

I couldn't resist these adorably cute chicks which I printed out on to thick cartridge paper and coloured with watercolour pencils. I die cut the image into a circle and added a green mat made from the scrap.
I had a bit of a challenge here as I'm waiting for some more coloured printer ink and had to rummage in my scraps box for papers in yellow and green. I hit upon the idea of cutting the papers into strips which I added to a square of thin card before attaching to the card blank.
I added a strip across horizontally and finished off with an Easter sentiment cut from a larger one on the Paper Boutique Volume 3 CD.

Have a great day and back in a bit with my That's Crafty project for this week.
