Using a couple of Retirees!!

Seems I cannot get away from Green Galore card but thought it appropriate for this card.

The idea came from a Papercrafts magazine and it is so cute.

I have used the retiring Stampin' Up! set Flower Filled for the flowers along the bottom and the wording comes from the SU set All Year Cheer I which is sadly also retiring. As it is one of the first lot of sets that I ever bought, I will be keeping it.

Cardstock colours again are from the Bold Brights family, Green Galore, Brilliant Blue, Only Orange and Yoyo Yellow.

I used a one inch circle punch for the chicks, the quarter inch punch for their beaks and the one eighth one for their eyes. The tab at the top is made with the Word Window punch. Just so much you can do with punches and a lot of the SU punches cannot be found anywhere else.
