Spring Chick

I'm thinking that I must have been reading Mary and Andrea's mind for this months Ribbon Girl Challenge when earlier in the week I ordered the Ribbon Kit in yellow, as it couldn't have been more perfect for the Green & Yellow challenge..  I am also combining this with this weeks Penny Black challenge which is Spring is Sprung, Sketch n Stash #57 Sketch and DYSU #11 - Add a Bow.  Here is the card..

The image is Penny Blacks Spring Chick which I picked up from the sale stamps at Hobby craft a couple of years ago after Easter and I have coloured in with pro-markers ( satin, tan, blender, blossom, buttercup, tulip yellow, ice grey 1).  The tail is finished off with a little bob tail made from the white pom poms cut up....

I've been fairly bold on the colour scheme, and I've used some pearlescent chocolate brown paper from Anna Marie Designs and the yellow paper is MME Stella & Rose, and I've use one of the Martha Stewart Border punches as well as some of the yellow ribbon from the kit from the Ribbon Girl.  It's finished off with chocolate brown card candy and a simple sentiment from "Tiny Sentiments" by wood ware.

Hope you like it
