Loonie Stamper Challenge #29 - Easter Wishes

Well, it was Dee's turn to pick the Loonie Stampers Challenge and she picked colors that are from the runways....orange, grey, and cream!
I don't know about anyone else, but I really struggled with this one. Maybe because my stash of Summer Sunrise is so small that it gave me few options.
I decided to use my animal dies from Martha Stewart for inspiration. I traced the little cardboard chick onto a small piece of Summer Sunrise and cut him out. Then, I added some polka dots. You might remember this card last month from Nichole Heady during the countdown to the big Papertrey Ink anniversary release. I loved it and could hardly wait to incorporate the idea into a card of my own. So, I decided to use the idea on this card.
I cut a rectangle out using my nestabilitie die. It was too wide so I ran the cut out rectangle again but put the die closer in along one side to make the scallop rectangle skinnier. Then, I stamped the rectangle inside along with a sentiment from the Mixed Message set.
I finished off the little card with some hemp that turns out to be the exact same color as Summer Sunrise, a nice discovery today!!
This little card will be added to my parcel that I send to my parents for Easter.
Now, you have to go check the Loonie Girls to see what they created for this challenge:
