Just Hatched

Hey there!!!

These cards are my project for the final week in the CHF contest.

This week was to do a one sheet wonder.

I have never done that before but had a great time doing it.

I stamped the open plaid backgrounder over a full sheet then cut it up into 4- 4x4 mats. I used the scraps upside down to stamp the nest on.I accented the background paper with a copic to match.

Now I have a few baby cards in my stash..whoot whoot!
