Bright and Cheerful Duck Card

Hi!  For the first time in a long while I am entering a challenge!  It feels good!!!
I've been way out of practice!  I'm entering this card into the PKS color/photo inspiration challenge you can see here.
 The color and photo for the challenge inspired me to use the bright papers and cute little duck.   I cut the bottom layer to size and then place the top layer where I wanted it to be.  I carefully turned both papers over and marked where I needed to cut the green paper.  I then glued the green paper within the marks and then cut of the edges that hung off.
 I used chalk and a make-up brush from ELF to do the cheeks.  I've used a couple of things (cotton swab, paint brush, sponge) to make the cheeks but a small soft make-up brush has been my favorite.
My Supplies:
Duck w/Egg  -  Peachy Keen Stamps and Cottage Cutz
The Spring and Summer Mat Stack  -  DCWV
Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart and Orange Zest Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks
Copic Markers, Glossy Accents
Sentiment, Happy Hunting stamp set  -  My Creative Time
Chalk and eye makeup blender brush for cheeks  -  ELF
Flower, Adhesive Gems and Brad from my stash

I'm so glad you stopped by today!  I have two more posts to show you this week so I hope you come back!  See you next time!!!
