Thursday Paper Smooches-RetroSketches Hey Chickie!

Happy Thursday!

I am popping in today to bring you a new card that I have been working on for 2 different challenges.  First up this week is an Anything Goes Week over at Paper Smooches Sparks challenge site.
I needed a bit of mojo and I found this awesome sketch over at Retro Sketches
I needed a card for my friend that has been house bound for awhile due to a broken leg and I came up with this card for her.
I stuck to the sketch as close as I could with just a couple of changes.  I first used my embossing paste again (yup totally addicted to the stuff!).  I love the circle and heart pattern.  I wanted the card to be cheery and what color is more cheery than yellow so I found a scrap of yellow studio calico paper.  Next I stamped my cute little chick and colored her with my spectrum noir markers.  I then stamped the sentiment.  For the white cardstock I used my Core'dinations 110 lb smooth cardstock! Finally I added some red solid twine from May Arts!

cardstock- Core'dinations
paper- studio calico
stamps- paper smooches
ink- memento, hero arts
twine- may arts
spectrum noir markers
embossing paste
stencil from the paper bakery kit club

Thank for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a birthday card!  See you then.  Have a wonderful and crafty weekend!
