Anything Goes Theme Challenge no 239 at TCCC blog starting 1 April 2020

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This card and posting are not part of an April Fool's Day joke! I love paper-crafting and due to it being the first of the month and various rotations of design team commitments, I have lots of 'em due this week! This Easter card using a Bugaboo image (1 of 2 sponsors for #239) is the first to be shown:

Walk by Faith Easter 2020 card 

The Easter chicks partially hatched with a wing pointing eastward I thought matched well with Creative Devotion's cling sticker "Walk in Faith" (and the cross in bottom right corner is from same set).

The patterned papers are from 2 different manufacturer's that have been in my stash for a long time. I thought the early spring greens, those yellow-green tones, matched well. And the 4 different solid color cardstocks are all Astrobrights/Neenah.

The "Easter Chick Egg-full" only came 1 size, so I used the printer function to do the smaller chick 'wallet'-size and the larger one is close to a 3" x 5". The base of the card is 1 full sheet of folded cardstock so folded dimensions are 5.5" x 8.5"

An old stencil template with different shapes and sizes was helpful to give each chick her own egg/oval parameters! Perfect touch! And a great contrast to the rectangles and triangles of the patterned papers!!

There are 2 sponsors for this fortnight challenge: Bugaboo and Decosse's Dynamite Doodles=

Since I printed the digital image onto 2 different colors of cardstock, I just wanted to accent-fill a few portions of each chick. A gold glitter paint pen (that I've been using a lot lately!) was used solely for the tiny top feathers and the main body just above the broken egg shell. And then it was used over the magenta marker used to fill the heart and the center circle of the bow. An yellow-orange marker was used for the beak. These were for the little gal! For the larger chick, I just used a purple marker for the heart and center circle of the bow/knot and a teal green marker (due to the yellow cardstock looks Kelly green) for the bow.

Darling card that will be mailed to my sister's family! Even Christians that have walked in faith for years still need reminded and to be pointed again to the cross. It is not by our own merits, it was Christ's death on the cross about 2, 000 years ago that makes salvation possible.
