Kaela looks so cute in her Easter dress with the baby chick and I really liked coloring her. The butterfly is a floral accent and I trimmed the back on the body flat so it would lie flatter on the card.
The Easter eggs were made from balloon punches that I trimmed to make into eggs. The cute little bunny stamp was a $1 stamp and the super gathered ribbon was on clearance at Walmart, I'm always on the look out for a crafty bargain!
