Welcome to the Michael Strong Stamps Spring Blog Hop!  You've probably come from Joanna's blog and I know you enjoyed her project.

For mine I used Mike's Fiona's Flock and the Mini Egg.  I stamped the chicks on the left side of patterned paper, stamped another set on white, colored and cut them out minus the legs and using a  Stampin' Dimensional applied them over the other stamped chicks.  Then applied Crystal Effects for a shiny finish.

I added flags from the same paper at the top right, took a small label shape and cut it in half and placed along the right edge.  Stamped two of Mike's mini eggs using VersaMark and embossed with his Mirror Gold Embossing Powder and applied pastel colors using markers to match the patterned paper.  Stamped a greeting (Craftsmart) and embossed in black embossing powder and added to the label.  Added ribbon, a teeny tiny flower with gold Wink of Stella on top and a stick pin.  Hope you like it.  Comments are always appreciated! So now on to Michael Strong's blog.  Enjoy!  http://www.blog.strongstamps.com/

  5. Your card is TOO CUTE, April! I just love how you used those adorable chickies! Thanks for telling us how you stamped twice...and added the chick layer minus the legs on top! What a great idea! And love that you added crystal effects to make them shiny (I always forget about doing that!). Your card is perfect! Thanks for sharing! hugs, Laura

  7. Awww! You chopped-off their legs!! How could you ;)

    You made a lovely, very cheerful, very spring-like card and it's a great idea to amputate the legs like that to make them easier to cut out. I really like it.
