Three Little Chicks

Today's card was inspired by a challenge at A Blog Named Hero - Topsy Turvy - Use a sentiment for something other than a sentiment.  (Challenge #3).  I decided to use a sentiment as a border.  I also like the farm chick image from The Stamping Boutique, so thought it would be a perfect card for a baby congratulations card.

Three Little Chicks

I white embossed the Hero Arts Congratulations sentiment onto kraft around the edge.  I coloured the three chicks with a yellow copic maker, cut them out and added them onto the card with dimensionals.  I felt the kraft needed to be bordered with yellow cardstock, but the yellow card I had didn't match so I used my yellow copic marker on white card and framed it with that.  Lastly I added the white bow.

Sorry I still haven't had a chance to blog about Stamp Camp and what I made.  I think about blogging about it in the evenings, but remember I don't have any photos of what I made and I really need to do that during the daylight.  I finally took some photos of what I made today, so I will try and blog about in the next few days.

Here is a  photo to give you some idea what we did.


Thanks for dropping by and for your comments.
