Simply Charmed Birthday Card

Happy hump day!  I have been working through my list of scrapping-related projects for the month. One of the top projects on my list is to create a birthday card for my friend's daughter's first birthday.  I recently purchased Simply Charmed and I love the image of the chick in the hatched egg.  I initially threw this card together as a way to pair it with a My Pink Stamper stamp set I had lying around unused, but then realized that this would be a great birthday card.  I popped up everything on this card with pop dots for added dimension. I also cut out the chicks feet and used them to create a dimensional flower in the lower right hand corner.
