Sweet 'n Sassy & OCC Sketch ...

My card today is larger than what I normally make, but the OCC Weekly Sketch (below) seemed to call for a bigger card! I used Sweet 'n Sassy's cute Spring Chicks and Easter Blessing Sentiments for my images! 

Remember, today is Digi Day for Sweet 'n Sassy on SNR! The challenge is "EASTER" and if you participate there's a free digi for you!


I printed the Spring Chicks and the Easter Sentiment on Whisper White cardstock, then cut them out with a Circle Nestabilities. I colored the chicks with Copic Markers and outlined the sentiment with them as well!  Next, I sponged Memento Summer Sky and New Sprout inks on the outer rims of the circles. I mounted my chicks to pink glittery scalloped circles and my sentiment to a circle I punched with a Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace corner punch. My desiger paper is from Daisy D and my cardstock is from Bazzill. I added Prima Roses, rhinestones and a pretty organza bow to finish the card. Card size: 4 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches
