Mabelle RO - Spring Garden Chickie

Happy Mabelle Monday!

I have another new digi from Mabelle's Spring/Easter collection - Spring Garden Chickie.  The designer paper is brand new from Simple Stories "Fabulous".  I pulled all the colors from this patterned paper.  The image is colored with Copic markers and I chalked the background. 

The image was cut out with Nestabilities Standard Circles. 
I added some embossing to the base card with a border embossing folder called Frills from Cuttlebug.  First I used my Scorebuddy to create 2 embossed lines 3" apart to use as a guide for the folder so the embossing would be straight. I line us the edge of the border folder with the embossed line and ran it thru my Cuttlebug, once for the top scallop then again for the bottom scallop.  

I added some self adhesive pearls for some added interest.     

Cardstock: Bazzill Caribean Breeze, Copic XPress It,
Tools: Cuttlebug embossing folder Frills border, Nestabilities Standard Circles, ScorBuddy
Embellishments: Self Adhesive Pearls
Chalk: I kan'dee Brights
Copic:  YG93, YG95, YG97, YR21, YR23, YR24, YR31, YR18, YR61, YR65, YR68, RV21, RV23, RV24, RV25, RV29, BG01, BG05, BG09, E55, E57, E59
