Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #61

Happy Friday! I'm so happy the weekend is finally here. Hopefully, it will stop raining so we can enjoy the outdoors. So in honor of spring I decided to pull out my favorite little chicks from The Cat's Pajamas. These darling little gals are from the set called "Beans, Bunnies, and Peeps, Oh My!". I colored everything in with my Copics and then I matted it with a Zva Creative rectangular crystal frame. To add more detail I sprinkled some Flower Soft in pink on the branches. I also decided to sprinkle some between the crystals since the exposed adhesive allowed the FS to adhere perfectly. I really like how it turned out. The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket. The felt flowers and eyelets are also from Zva Creative. Well, that's all for today but if you want to participate in the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge here are all the details you need to know.
1.You're not required to use cupcakes for the challenge, but if you got 'em why not use 'em!? :)
2.You're welcome to create something other than a card, just stick as closely to the sketch as possible and you'll be eligible for the prize drawing!
3.If you're uploading to Splitcoast use keyword TECC61 (for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 61 or link your creation on this post.
