Sunday Challenge - Sketch

My turn to set the challenge today on Dottie's World and I decided that a sketch would be nice.

One firm stipulation is that the card must have some sort of fancy edge, mine here is a row of Easter eggs as I decided on an Easter themed card.

Once again I am using the lovely Holly in the Garden image, it is so versatile. My chicks were cut on my Silhouette but the beaks didn't cut well so I did those separately. Same with the legs, too spindly when cutting small so I had to draw them instead. Gawd knows what happened to the tiny circles that was meant as eyes but you only notice they haven't got any when it's blown up like this LOL
Holly and the chicks were coloured with Copic markers. I also colured some of the hyacinths in the basket with them.

They look quite cute sitting on top of the card I think. The Easter Basket with eggs was also cut on the Silhouette, although I pinched one of the larger eggs from the egg border - which I also cut on the Silhouette! I didn't notice until just now that one of the pens has bled around the hat. Oh well, I actually think it looks as though I intended to do that LOL

Pop over to Dottie's World and check out the amazing card created by the design team! Oh and I am offering a prize this week also, so don't miss out.

Thanks for looking x

Oh what a beautiful spring like card to match this beautiful spring day. This is a cracking card (pardon the pun lol) You could even have put eggs in Holly's basket- now there's an idea!
A fabulous card by a fabulous friend.♥♥

Brilliant Karen, I need a bit of a push to think of Holiday type cards. This is just perfect for Easter, thanks to you and the DT for so much inspiration.
