KS Monday -- Mar 22nd, 2010

Hello and happy Kitchen Sink Monday everyone~
Right after the first day of spring, we had snow in TX, lol. It had been warm and pleasant for the last one week so that this cold weather was like eating sour grapes :( At least we can enjoy feeling spring in the card world, right?

To create the main panel, I used 3 Step Hey Chick! and stamped the chick images first. Then with Multi Step Clovers & Shamrocks, I stamped the clovers randomly from the chick's feet to below. The little flowers were also stamped from the Hey Chick! set. I sponged the sky with Memento summer sky.
The all papers except the designer paper and pink label mat are from PaperTemptress - St. Patty's KSS Green Package. I created the border on the bottom of the card with the Martha Stewart border punch. The ribbon & rhinestones were used for the embellishments.

These are the steps I did for each image (all inks are Memento unless mentioned):
(all clovers) 1st - pear tart, 2nd - bamboo leaves, 3rd - cottage ivy
(chicks) 4th - rich cocoa, 3rd - desert sand, 2nd - cantaloupe, 1st - dandelion
(flowers) rose bud
