You're the Coolest Chick I Know!

Happy Friday!  I have a card to share with you today using this week's Mojo Monday sketch253.  It is contest week!  I turned the sketch.

For my card I am using Verve's Chicks Rule stamp set.  I also cut into a new stamp pad I just got in the mail.  I am using BasicGrey PB&J Collection.  I layered the patterns with some coodinating card stock, stitched the edges, and created a fun sort of hot air balloon look with the basket bottom from the stamp set combined with a spellbinders die tied with some red/white string.  I colored the basket and chick with copic markers.  I finished with some gold pearls, seam binding bow topped with button and twine bow.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
