The Prize – One $20 gift code will go to one random commenter from the blogs. So be sure  to visit all the blogs because you don’t know which one the winner will be drawn from. You have through Sunday March 19 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on March 20 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Marble Feathers Bg! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

Isn’t this new Chick w/ Butterfly adorable? After coloring it, I die cut w/ a pierced oval. The greeting was stamped on a piece of the leftover white & after die cutting w/ a pierced square, I trimmed it down a bit. To stamp the greeting, I lined it up in my Misti & stamped it w/ black. Then I shifted the white piece slightly up & left & stamped it again w/ lulu lavender to give it the shading.

Two extra daisies were fussy cut & I made a little sheer bow to go on the side. The grape background was die cut w/ the new Swirl Cuts Bg die. It cuts all the swirls but leaves them intact. A really nice effect!

Here’s a look at the inside. I had a piece of lighter lavender w/ the lg egg shape already cut out, so I thought it would be perfect for the inside. The Flower Corner was stamped in grape & I used a white gel pen to add a few highlights. Below this are the Copics I used.

Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
