These Magic In The Air at Paper Cupcakes Challenge!

 Afternoon everyone! Well here we are another Monday! Oh these weeks are flying by! End of February today, before we know it the summer will be upon us.

Over at Theres Magic in the Air this week we would like to to think a bit cooler than summer, were looking for 'SPRING', Oh how I love the spring.... baby lambs, Baby Chicks, Easter Eggs... oh so and the not so fun spring clean! Oh well, back to my card! 

This week I have used this lovely little chick! Isn't she adorable!?! She is available over at the Paper Cupcakes Store, with a number of other lovely digis!

Well, as some of you may know I'm a hoarder... I cant throw anything away, not even little scraps, so this card is a bizarre shape, but it made it all the more spring like!

I coloured the image in with my pro markers, I used buttercup to colour the chick, Peach for her beak and feet, Poppy and a blue that I cant remember on the case of the cake and Cardinal Red on her bow! I also used Ice Grey 1 round the edge of the icing on the cake! 

I wrote 'Spring has Sprung ...' in silver peel offs and used a few odd flower peel offs just to make the card a bit brighter and more spring like! 

I coloured the image twice and cut out the top of the cake and chick, I did think about adding another layer, but I don't like making cards that are too thick for when they are posted, the cost of postage these days is stupid! 

Well there you have it! I hope you like her, if you have time please take a look at what the rest of the design team came up with! Please join us over at Theres Magic in The Air this week It would be lovely to have you there! I cant wait to see more creations!
