Sassy Farm Chicks Birthday

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this first Saturday in July. 

It's a holiday weekend and I hope you ae all getting a chance to celebrate this Independence Day weekend. From 1776 to the present day, July 4th has been celebrated as the birth of American independence. We had friends over last night for some festivities. On Sunday night we are going out with some friends to a local community fireworks display. 

We started our Saturday off with a Prayer Gathering for our City. It was organized by our church and held on an overlook to the City of Pittsburgh. It was a great start to our morning. Here is a photo of the view we had of the City of Pittsburgh. 
Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz BlogI am featuring the Country Farm Chicks from our Country Farm collection. I created a birthday card with a sassy birthday sentiment. I have a few brothers who would think this is just too funny. So one of them will receive it for their birthday. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card.

Design Steps:
I started my card this week with the layout. I had this one saved from Splitcoaststampers #856 and thought it would work well for the images I wanted to use. I did take some liberties with the sketch. Layer 4 is moved to the top of the image panel and instead of a rectangle image, I used a cloud.
Next, I die cut the chick images using different colors of colored cardstock. I used the packaging colors because I thought it was a good farm appeal.
I selected a sky themed background paper for layer 2 of the sketch. I used a blue panel for layering. My hill is cut from designer paper using the Hills Slimline die. I decided to add a sun and that is cut from the Clouds & Sun die.
Blue Layering Panel - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer Paper Layer - 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
I cut my cloud image and stamped my sentiment in a blue ink.
Now that all my elements are prepared I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the designer paper and the sun to the blue layering panel with double sided tape. The farm chicks and the cloud sentiment are attached with dimensional adhesive.
To finish off my card I added a white card base. The base is 4 1/2" x 5 3/4". Scattered a few glitter enamel dots and this card is complete. And, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless. Happy 4th of July everyone!!!
