You Lucky Duck!

I saw this card on Gretchen Barron's blog and just had to post it here! I really love this set from the new mini catalog - I just can't get over how cute the duck is. Some of my favorite things about this card are the glittery egg and the jumbo eyelet wheels - and you can't forget those adorable clouds. Check Gretchen's blog for instructions on how to create the clouds!

Hello everyone! Don't you just love this little ducky from the new set, Wagon Full of Fun? This little guy just looks so proud of himself and the egg-ceptional egg that he's created for Easter! Let's only hope he can make it to his destination without hitting any bumps!

I used Wagon Full of Fun and the Scallop Oval Punch from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I stamped the wagon on Close to Cocoa CS and then cut off the handle and attached it to the other side so the duck could pull it in the right direction (LOL). The duck is colored in with Stampin' Write Markers and then cut out and applied to the card. His wing was stamped again on a scrap and attached with a dimensional so he could hold the wagon handle. The wheels are Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets. The egg is colored in with markers and DD glitter was applied with a 2-way glue pen. The Egg Hunt Wheel is rolled on the Almost Amethyst CS. The DSP is Tea Party and the Certainly Celery Ribbon is from the SAB bundle. The grass and Sky were sponged using Garden Green and Baja Breeze. I used my own homemade Cloud Template (made from Scallop Circle Punches) to give the puffy-cloud effect.

You do such great work Gretchen - thanks for another fantastic idea!
