A Clutch Of Chickie Easter Scalloped Circle Cards

I've always loved the cute little chickie in the A Good Egg set but I didn't buy the set while it was current, I waited to get a retired bargain from eBay!  While I had chickie out and inked up I decided to make a few cards so I made 4 identical cards.  I love shaped cards and I went for a scalloped circle shape using my largest Nestie die.  My colour combo is Pool Party and Daffodil Delight with a touch of black.  I stamped on watercolour paper and coloured the chicks with markers and a wet paintbrush.  I paper pieced the eggshell with some patterned paper and used the same paper for the envelope flap.  I punched the sentiment out with the Modern Label punch and attached it with a black brad.

Here are my 4 chickie cards all together.  There's something so satisfying in seeing a group of identical cards, perhaps I should do it more often!
