Birthday Chick

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! So far the game is not going the way I was hoping for but hey, it's just a game. I was hoping that Peyton would win this one. Tomorrow is Girl Scout cookie delivery so I took the day off work to help unload the cookies for the county. We've had up to 4 semi trucks but last year they consolidated and got them all into 2 semis. I am hoping that's the case again. We are outside all day. Our temps are supposed to be below freezing but at least we will be finished before the big storm hits on Tuesday. Thank the good Lord for good weather on the day we do delivery.
My card tonight is another birthday card. I am trying to get ahead of February birthdays because there are a lot of them.

I used my Martha Stewart "punch around the page" floral tile punch. I am not very good at lining them up yet but I am getting better. I used a sentiment from Create with TLC . I just love some of her sentiments! This one stuck out for me. I added a Doodle Pantry image from the Triple Chick stamp set. I added some Penny Black chevrons to the sentiment, cut with Spellbinder's Lacy Squares. I distressed the edge around the sentiment with Tim Holtz distress ink of Squeezed Lemonade. And finally I added a few pastel green pearls in the corner.
I am entering these challenges:
Well, that's it for me today. I think I'm heading for bed early tonight so I'll be ready to work with the cookies tomorrow. The fact that I have to wear so many clothes makes it harder to move around and I'll use more energy. I hope you have a wonderful start to your new week!

Hi Donna, this is SO cute! And that is some fancy fussy cutting around those feet! You must have steady hands. I like how you layered your colors too. Thanks so much for entering Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 43!
