Happy Easter - Crazy 4 Challenges #77

Alrighty, it's time for another Crazy 4 Challenges! This month our host is the fabulous Silke Ledlow and today she has a sketch for us.

OK, so you know I'm not going to do a square card, right? Not unless I absolutely can't help it, LOL! So, I made my an A2 size and flipped the diagonal pieces.

My little PI is one of MFT's latest, One Sweet Chick (temporarily out of stock). Isn't she adorable!!? I just had to paper piece her dress and the egg. Totally sweet!! I stamped her on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and, in addition to paper piecing, colored her with Copic markers. Then I cut her out with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die and added some grass made with the Fresh Cut Grass Die-namics die, before layering it on the awesome new Die-namics' Dizzy Doily - which is my new fave, BTW ;-) For the center element, I adhered some Baja Breeze ribbon and added some TRUE black baker's twine that MFT is carrying HERE, along with a button and the sentiment flag.

And here's the inside with some more sweet chicks.


Okey dokey, that's it for me! Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C77.
