Was this ever a fun card to figure out!

For Stella's Easter card, I knew I wanted to create a happy chick breaking free from his shell. But I wasn't at all sure how this was going to turn out. It was a case of experiment, experiment, experiment. 

To start, I made two circles, one from Daffodil Delight, the other from Soft Sky, with my Big Shot and the Circles Collection Framelits to form the chick and his shell. I "broke" the shell by cutting it in half and randomly hand cutting peaks and valleys to form the break from which the cute big-eyed chick is emerging.

To make the egg shell look just a bit more Easter-y, I used the stamps from last month's Paper Pumpkin kit to decorate the egg. After I put the egg and shell together, I must admit, I became a bit punchy. 

Here is a hint: Stampin' Up! punches were used for the chick's "hair", his wings, his beak, the FOUR pieces of his eyes, as well as the turquoise surrounding the embossed Wild Wasabi piece. Would you like to guess which punches I chose to use? 

The catchlights on his eyes were created with the White Stampin' Chalk Marker on page 211 of the big catalog.

So, whaddya think about my little punchy chick?

Wishing you and yours a happy, happy Easter!
