Easter Friends for #GDP337 & #FMS530

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was inspired by two challenges, the Global Design Project Color Challenge #337 and Jen's Sketch from Freshly Made Sketch #530.  Please click on their images to visit the blog posts and enjoy the inspiration!

Assembly & Trix:

*  This card is a mix of retiring and current products, but there's really no *Trix except that I stamped the little chick with So Saffron ink then coloured her with a sponge dauber, ever so carefully, using sticky notes to hold near the edge of the image so I didn't over colour onto the white, this chick is small :)

*  Easter Friends, #157737 is retiring but the sentiment is from Art Gallery stamp set, #154421 is not.  The first layer of Soft Sea Foam is embossed with the Stitched Greenery Die, #155451, it's still with us.  However the gorgeous Ornate Layers Dies, #152726 is retiring, so I had to double them up and build the layers for fun while we have 'em :)  

* The little flowers are die cut from the Bouquet Of Love Dies, #157641, using Basic White, then I blended Brushing Bride onto the die cut piece for a variation in depth of colour.  So I guess that's a 2nd ***Trix  :)   The Blushing Bride Ribbon, has retired, I'm sorry, it was in the July - December 2021 Mini Catalogue, so keep your eyes on the Clearance Rack you never know when it might pop back up.  Oh, and the Adhesive Backed Hexagons, #155148 are Blushing Bride too!
