Butterflies and Baby Chicks

I had two things I just had to try this week - one the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger and the new digital butterfly stamps I purchased through 2 Peas in a Bucket. And this is the resulting card from those two challenges, paired with these We R Memory Keepers papers.
I don't do much digital work, I need to practice more to get the hang of it but I just love this butterfly set. There are four butterflies in the one set. I opened a Word document and inserted just this one butterfly and then I sized it to the size I wanted. I knew I wanted it to be rather large. I printed it on the Curious Iridescent Cyrogen cardstock that I just love to use. Printing on it is a dream and so is coloring with Copic markers.
I wanted to pull out all of the colors on this piece of patterned paper so my butterfly is a bit unusual as butterflies go. The center portions were then given a coat of Aleene's Paper Glaze.
***
For my next card, I have this totally adorable stamp set by Kim Hughes for Cornish Heritage Farms. I used it the other day for the Easter card that I posted. This set has so many adorable stamps in it that I just had to use more of them.
I paired this little chick with some Cosmo Cricket patterned papers and the card base is the new Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions by Core'dinations. Just a bit of sanding and the great embossed design shows up.
Is that the cutest chick?

Gotta share a photo from today. We took my youngest grandson out and about today to do some fun things. He kept this adorable hat on all of the time we were out which is unusual and SOOOOOO cute!
He was riding on a Fire Engine and it had a siren sound, can you see his lips? He was so into it.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
