Designed2Delight Spring Chicks

Oh, I can't wait for Spring!  Some days it seems like Spring already and then other days we are back to dreary winter. All the plants and trees are thoroughly confused.

To brighten my mood til Spring actually gets here, I've been working on Spring cards.
This is Designed2Delight's Spring Chicks. I think they are the cutest chickies!

I water-colored the image with Ranger Distress inks. I'm not crazy about my coloring of the butterfly because he is so bright, he seems to be stealing the spotlight.

I followed a sketch I found on Catch the Bug right here. I turned the sketch on its side to better fit the size of the image. The sketch was just the inspiration I needed to make this card!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Stamp Man - Colours of Spring / Easter
2 Sisters - Anything goes
Send a Smile for Kids - Spring/Easter for Kids
One Stitch At A Time - Use a Digi- Spring/Easter
Divas by Design -  Spots or Stripes
Penny's Paper-Crafty - anything goes 
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Partytime Tuesdays -  Anything Goes
Ribbon Carousel Challenge - Anything Goes With Avocado Arts
Sassy Cheryl's - Are You Seeing Spots? Use Spots & Dot's
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Squigglefly - Spring is in the Air
There's Magic in the Air - "Critter" in the image 

Thanks for dropping by,
PeggySue

Hi PeggySue, awww so sweet! Love the chicks, and yes the butterfly is bright - but doesn't detract from the chicks at all.

Thanks for joining in with us this week at Divas by Design.
