Happy Birthday Lil' Chick!

Mornin' hens!  Today is Lil' Chick's birthday!  
As I was digging through my stamp collection I came across this adorable Penny Black stamp.  It has HAPPY written all over it to me.  Oh, I do love me some Penny Black images.  SUPER CUTE!

Ok, so I decided to keep the card simple and let the colorful image be the focus.  I just love the clean and simple look!  Ok, so I stamped the image onto some Neenah Classic Crest coverstock and colored it with my Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  I added some Glossy Accents to the balloon and their eyes, and then I cut the image out using a stitched rectangle die.  To add a little interest, I scored the card base using my paper trimmer and the score blade, one half inch in from each of the four sides, creating a cross hatch look on the corners.  It's not that visible in the photo but it makes a barely noticeable frame around the image.  Oh man, I do LOVE this card!!   To finish, I tied on some baker's twine and adhered the image with some foam tape.  Ta-da!  Have I mentioned I loveeee this card??  Tee-hee!  I hope you hens have a FABULOUS Friday!!
