Talk is Cheep!

Hey, there! I made a card for Emma's throwback Thursday challenge #60. She asked us to use Zooballoo or to make something with an animal on it. Unfortunately, I don't own Zooballoo yet. I'm still pretty new and I only have a few carts and most of them are fairly recent. So I thought I'd pull out the Just Because Cards cart and make one of the cute animals on there.

Here is what I came up with:

Cart used: Just Because Cards
Ovals: cut at 5 1/4 and 5
Chick: cut at 5 1/4
Sentiment "Cheep talk": cut at 5 1/4

inked edges, distressed edges a bit, used some gel pens for highlights, ribbon from stash, papers from stash
I love my new Tim Holtz alterations embossing folder! It is a woodgrain one and I used it in the background of my card.
I am going to give this to one of my girlfriends who had a surgery and just got home this week. I think it will crack her up! She is quite a chatterbox. :)

Let me know what you think! Thanks for looking and I always appreciate your feedback.
