Cottage Cutz/Spring Chick a dee/& Video

Hello everyone today I'm sharing a Sweet Cottage Cutz Spring Chick-a-dee from The Scrapping Cottage! I've also done a video showing how I colored her and with what colors.
My card is the opposite of the Z-Fold card, when open it should fold like a Z but i wanted to do mine a little different, so it folds in :) 
I love Cottage Cutz Spring Chick-a-dee, she is sooo cute, and super fun to color. I almost was going to use the Dusting technique i love doing on these but decided to color with copics today.


Ive added some pearls to both their dresses, and to the flower by the mailbox. The LOVE is stamped from Cottage Cutz Vintage Key.

mailbox was dusted with Tim Holtz Colors-
The Post was dusted in-Tea Die
Mailbox=Spun Sugar
Letter in Mailbox=antique linen
Grass=G99,G24,YG13


Challenges:
ABC Challenge, J is for Jazz it up
Crafty Catz Weekly challenge/Favorite things(Pink, Ribbon,Flowers,Cottage Cutz)
Simply Create Too/Add Sunshine to your day( I added a sun too)
Totally PaperCrafts/Ribbon and Bows

Copic Colors I used for Spring Chick-a-dee
For Spring Chick=YR31,Y11,Y08
Cheek Color=R20
Beak and Feet=YR09,YR15
Dress & Hat=RV34,RV23
These colors were used on this Spring Chick-a-dee below. and all the chicks above, the only color i cant remember is the one on the front of the card, since that green was used on the hat a few days ago. I think for the dress on the front I listed it in the video below.


Hope you enjoy my video! 
I did forget to show how i add the cheeks in the video since it was running out of time, but I just add them with R20 and if you want to soften them use the clear blender copic. I didnt soften them in these. I also added some white gel pen to the cheeks.
All Ribbon used is PINK Satin From Really Reasonable Ribbon Found Here~Ive used it on the front lower right corner, and on the chick's hat in the picture right above my video. 

Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!
Hugs,
Cheryl
