{Unity} Friends with Flair Friday!

Hi there! I'm participating in Unity Stamp Company's Friends with Flair Friday! This is my first time, so I'm excited about it.

I recently became a Unity Kit Club subscriber, and with your first order as a new subscriber, you get a goodie bag of stamps. This cute little chickie was in my bag, and when I saw it, I just knew I had to ink it up in time for Easter. I'm sorry, but I searched all through the Unity store trying to find the name of it so I could link to it, but I couldn't find it. It must be discontinued.

I used my Taylored Expressions Easter Key Ingredients for this card. All of the papers are BasicGrey Kioshi. I colored the image with Copics, cut it out with Nestabilities, and sponged Memento Cantaloupe on it. This is a technique I've seen a lot lately, and I wanted to try it. However, let's just say that my sponging skills leave a lot to be desired.

I also added some Stickles to the eggs. I matted the image on pink cardstock, cut out with Scallop Circle Nestabilities. I stamped the sentiment - "Happy Spring" from A Year of Sweet Sentiments by Taylored Expressions - directly on the card. I finished it off with two ribbons from the Key Ingredients.

By the way, I think I used a sketch for this card, but I don't remember which one. Oops! LOL!

My spring card is perfectly appropriate. Today is our last day of school before Spring Break! YES! I've mentioned that my students have been driving me crazy. The closer it gets to Spring Break, the wilder they get. Thank you, God, for a vacation! :) I plan on giving this card to a friend at work. I wanted to make some cute little Easter baskets for my co-workers, but I didn't have time, so I just purchased some chocolate bunnies and tied pink bows around them.

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp challenge to make an Easter or Spring card, as well as the Our Daily Bread Designs challenge to make a Spring card.
