Happy Easter to a real cute chick

Happy Sunday! I hope everybody had a safe and sound St. Patrick's Day. Today I have another card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge:
CFC44: It's as Easy as 1-2-3 Create a Clean And Simple project using
1. A Pattern
2. An Image
3. A Sentiment

I found this cardstock at Michael's this week while they had their open-stock Recollections papers 6/$1.00, and I really like it. The name of the color is not on the tag and I forgot to look at the name at the store, but it's much lighter than kraft and you can still see white pen against it. And I LOVE me some kraft paper! It's great to have another, slightly different but still krafty, option. And you can't beat that price! I used this cardstock to make a shaped card (which I don't do often, but I don't know why. I like 'em). I used a Nestabilities die to cut the shaped card and a piece of patterned paper by Echo Park. Now for the paper yummies:

I just love that lil' chick with the bunny ears! Too cute!

I'm playing along with these challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays CFC44: Easy as 1-2-3
Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge: Things with wings
PaperCrafting Journey Challenge 5: Pretty pastels

Thanks for looking!

Supplies: cardstock: Recollections; patterned paper: Echo Park; stamps: Hampton Art (sentiment), Craftsmart (image); ink: Tsukineko; markers: Prismacolor; die: Nestabilities by Spellbinders; die cut machine: Cuttlebug by Provocraft; white pen: Uniball Signo; baker's twine: Divine Twine

  2. Kimberly, I have been following your work on flickr (I'm not a stalker, I promise! :) and wanted you to know I really love your style (I struggle with the whole clean and simple" thing -- I love it, but always tend toward "more is more!"). Your finished cards are always so polished and you nail every detail. Anyway, big fan here! Keep up the great work! :)
