Easter Card ~ Little Chickie {1st Post}

I have a little Easter chick to share today.
Each year the kindergarten teachers at our school hatch chick eggs in class.
This little guy reminds me of the children's excitement seeing them hatch.
First I inked up my embossing folder to create my dot background.
Next I die cut the circle shaker window and backed it with acetate.
I wanted the chick to pop so I backed the window with pink.
Then I framed the polka dot panel with a little yellow accent.
To finish off I added a little Easter sentiment.
