And here is my card for today's reveal!

I loved, loved the adorable Easter Chicky when I saw it.
I love it so much that I have a 'second' card 
 later in the  month to share with you!

I made a cute, cute onsie baby card.
I remember when these cards first came out
about 8 years ago or so and decided it was time to bring one!

There are plenty of tutorials out there,
each one a little bit different.
I made mine using a very basic pattern
cutting a piece of card stock 11 1/2 x 4 1/4, then folding in half.
I used a 1 3/8" punch for the top, using about half of it, 
the same punch for the bottom,
this time using about 3/4" of it and then trimming the bottom straight.
The arms/sides I measured in about 1" from the sides and 1 1/4"
down from the top, then cutting straight in.
Then just measure down from the underarm diagonally to the bottom
and trim off,  
You can use that piece to trace the other side so both sides are even.
(TIP:  Once you get a perfect onsie base made,
just keep it for a pattern and make another to use)

To dress up my onsie, I punched 6 dots with a 3/4" punch
from scraps of Super Adhesive Sheets.
These sheets have adhesive on both sides,
I simply placed them where I wanted them,
then peeled off the paper and added Orange Crush glitter.

The chick was stamped, colored with Copics,
then fussy cut out.
I did stamp the egg shell again from a heavier card stock
and coated it with Brushable Glue, then Cloud Nine glitter.
It gave it a bit more dimension.

was added just to the top of the chicky's head.

I dipped 3 brads in Brushable Glue, then Orange Crush glitter for the bottom 'snaps".

Once completely done, I went around and randomly added dots of
Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops Sherbert Shimmer
which seemed to be the perfect match for the Orange Crush glitter.
I let this dry overnight, though it dries in a few hours normally.

Lace was added to the sleeves and a bow at the top.

Makes sure and visit ALL the designers blog and leave a comment
to have a chance to win the ENTIRE release.

Next on the hop should be our very talented
