Chicks From the Herd Balloon Easel Card

Hi there, Stampin' Friends! I have an adorable Chick card to share today.  I created it for a dear friend who fell recently during an ice storm and shattered her ankle.  Her injury required emergency surgery to put her ankle back together with plates, screws, and pins...Yes, plural of all of those three.  I am hoping that this will bring her a little cheer while she sits and heals.

If you look closely, I used the red metallic thread from Candy Cane Lane Baker's twine. (click on the photo to enlarge it)  I cut a length and pulled the red thread away from the white baker's twine and tied it around the 'knot' on the balloons.  I thought it added a fun touch with those crazy haired chicks.  I also rounded the corners of the Balloon Pop-Up thinlit as well as the Real Red card base.

And here is the card opened......

If you have questions, please ask!

Blessings ~
