A Good Egg Easter Card

I CASEd this card from the Demonstrator Community Website.  Of course, now that I go back to find it again to credit the creator I cant find it.  I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  This card ended up being a little more difficult than I anticipated.  For the window I punched the 1-3/4" Circle punch.  Each layer had to be punched separately.  I started with the top layer then glued it and lined up and punched the second layer, etc....  This would have been much easier had I had the Circle #2 Die for the Big Shot.  Once I had the window punched out I had to figure out how to line up the chick on the inside.  I drew a little pencil circle so I could line him up.  I couldn't stamp him straight through because he is a little bigger than the circle.  I used Ruby Red Ink and a Blender Pen to 'paint' in his egg.  I used Stampin' Pastels to color in the chick giving him a soft fluffy look.

You can see from the inside shot the little chick and the Happy Easter message.  Of course, after all this work, I dropped the Happy Easter Stamp and made an extra mark...just my luck :)
