Chick Chat


It's been a cold, windy, wet and wild weekend here and we're bracing ourselves for temperatures in the mid 50s tomorrow.  Brrrr!  A good day for bustin' out the space heater in the Craft Cave and gettin' my card on!  I got a couple of special order cards sorted out this weekend and one challenge card for the Colour Throwdown.  I was so happy to see a colour palette that didn't include red or pink.  :)  I used the sketch from Skipping Stones Design and a few stamps from their cute Chick Chat set.  Now off to watch the rest of the Grammys - don't want to miss Adele's performance!

Cardstock:  (Cream) Handy Hippo, (Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Chick and sentiment from Chick Chat) Skipping Stones Design
Ink:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger

So cool how the chick just pops off the page with the other colors in your card. Great use of the sketch too!

Super cute card, Jen! Love that big flower accent. You know mid-50s temps don't get a lot of sympathy from me, right? ;)

Jenny said...

That's one cute chick and a fun sentiment too :0)
