Shannon's Sentimenst #19-Spring Colors

 It's challenge time again at Shannon's Sentiments and Michelle is our hostess this week with a fun color challenge.  We want to see those projects using yellow, pink, & green- what a great color combo!

I have been just itching to use this cute lil' chick and sentiment from the Easter Time set and this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity.  I immediately grabbed that sparkly fluff for my lil' chick. I printed my image twice, so  I could pop up his wing for added dimension. I added some fun embossing using one of my Cuttlebug folders, papers are from 6x6 Bazzill stack I got at Archiver's, and  pearls are from $1 section at Michael's.  I inked the edges of my sentiment and embossed papers with CTMH tulip ink and then added a little ribbon bow.

 Come join us for a Earth Day Blog Hop on April 22nd, you can find all the deets here

To play along, just add your post link to the Mr. Linky widget on the sidebar here for the March challenges. Mr. Linky will close for the month on Friday, Apr. 1st at 11:59pm EST. Please don't include your link in just the comments....for fear it will get lost along the way and not counted toward the monthly prizes.

The rules are the same as always.....
At the end of the month one $10 gift certificate to the Sentiments store will be given to one random winner picked from all participants each month. There will also be one free image ($3 value) given to the one player that participates the most each month.

1) You are encouraged to use an image from Shannon's Sentiments, but it's not required. (Check out the many freebies available at the store.)
2) Each player may contribute as many entries as they'd like for each challenge.
3) Blog posts must be linked back to the challenge post with your actual blog post, not your general blog link, or gallery link using the Mr. Linky widget. Links included in the comments section only will not be included in the monthly drawing.
4) Your entry must be new art created for this challenge. You can combine it with other challenges.
