My Peep's Birthday

I needed to send a birthday card out today.  I went through some images that I received via an image swap on SCS.   I came across the Birthday Chicken from Whipper Snapper Designs.  I thought the image would make a cute card.

The color combination is based upon the color challenge at the Crafty Ho's Challenge Blog for this week.  Primary colors are the theme for the challenge.  Thinking about it, I guess I do not use all primary colors too often.  

The card base and sentiment is Conqueror CX22 Diamond White.  The yellow layer is Stampin' UP! Summer Sun.  The red paper is Stampin' UP! Real Red.  The DP is a scrap that I had from Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety.

As I mentioned I had the image from an image swap.  I colored the image with Prisma colored pencils.  I added white accents with a gel pen.  I sponged both the computer generated sentiment and the image with Colorbox Chalk Ink in Wheat and Stampin' UP! Summer Sun ink.  Nestabilities were used to cut, emboss and layer the image.

I used my Sizzix embossing folder Flowers 'n Dots for the yellow layer.  I put a stickle drop in yellow on the DP flower.  I had a cute little flower eyelet I attached to the DP.  The ribbon is from JoAnn's that I stapled onto the paper.

Thanks for taking a look and hope that you have a great day!
