Pre Release Challenge Time

Happy Friday!  It’s time for Flourishes pre-release challenge. 
Colorful Creations Challenge Graphic
Today we want you to create a card using the color combo above.  Link your card to the post on the Flourishes blog for a chance to win the entire March release!  Please use keyword FLLCMAR13 when uploading to a public forum. 
I used this cute chick from the Easter Wishes set.

I started by stamping my image on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored it with Copic markers and cut it out using Classic Ovals from Spellbinders.  I inked inside the die with Distress Ink in Antique Linen.
The patterned paper is from the MME Lost and Found Hattie.  It perfectly coordinated with the yellow grosgrain ribbon.   I added some fuzzy texture to the pussy willows with white fun flock and Glossy Accents to the egg shell.  I hope you can see it in the close up below.

Very pretty Danielle. The flocking on the tips of the willows is a wonderful touch.
